Default far cry online strange.....

it worked before i installed xp service pack two, and mcafee and all windows update. but after installing all these things i just get cd verification timeout when i type my cd key to log online in far cry. disabling all firewalls did nothing, opening all ports did nothing, its really strange. Even before i installed xp service pack 2, all windows update, and mcafee this game worked online with the latest patches and without the latest patches it still worked online. now it doesnt. i even tried firewalls disabling in mcafee as well as windows xp. i just wasted 35 dollars on this game. alot of people have this problem on the offical forum of far cry, but there seems to be no solution. i dont want to remove windows service pack 2.

do you have a router?

edit: this might be it, ok go to Start:control panel:secutrity center:click windows firewall and a window will pop up. Go to exceptions and see if Far Cry is unchecked, if it is check it, and if its not there go to Add Program and manually add it
