    I dunno man, all you could do is send a support ticket to Steam?

    Google always solves my problem, you could try it.

  3. For your DayZ issue:
    >Search "run"
    >type "regedit
    >find folder: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
    >ctrl+f (finder) type: "Arma 2 OA"
    ****While finding, to the right will be your CD key in files "Bohemia Interactive Studios - Arma 2 OA" IF YOURS IS 00 00 00 00 00 00 00(etc.) then your key has been stolen. IF IT APPEARS XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX then there will be a breif moment where it will show you (maybe for a quick second) if the numbers/letters don't look like a normal CD key (56 c4 89 d6 7d...) you will have to re-buy Arma 2 (sadly)****
    >after the finder closes, there should be a folder called "Bohemia Interactive" click it
    >Delete BOTH Arma 2 OA
    >Exit steam
    >Re-launch steam as administrator
    >Go back to Arma 2 OA in your library
    >Right click > Properties
    >Click the local files tab
    >Verify integrity of game cache
    Now you should be able to play.
    If this doesn't work, let me know. I have another solution.
