Feigning normality since 1973

Giving the gift of Starforce for Christmas

Filed in: Games.

I gave a friend of mine a copy of Star Trek: Legacy for Christmas. This game, published by Bethesda Softworks, is the latest and greatest in the Star Trek computer game franchise, and he'd been looking forward to playing it immensely.

Alas, it was not to be. After he installed it, the game refused to play. Windows reported an Access Violation and that was that. Then the PC began resetting abruptly at random intervals. Uninstalling the game didn't help. Reinforcements were called in (Unfortunately as both friend and PC are halfway up the North Island from me, I couldn't render much assistance) and it turns out that Star Trek Legacy had deposited a somewhat nasty piece of work named Starforce on his machine.

Said computer is now undergoing reconstruction, and I'm trying to see if I can get a refund.

"Then the PC began resetting abruptly at random intervals."

Ah, so it made Windows act normally then. :)

I hate Starforce. I would like to break the jaw
of the person who created it.

This is a list of Starforced games, although I don't see Legacy on it. You may want to let them know:
