Yeah and be dam careful i have a complete legal copy of BioShock but lost the CD, so d/l a no CD crack that actually worked fine but contained some god awful virus or some thing, never seen anything like it, and that led to a complete re-install!

This might be dumb, But besides looking for the key like someone said. Maybe you can do a system restore an go back like 2 months?
I cant think of anything. Some programs store the Key on your computer. But as far as knowing where to look, i dont know. Maybe in yur registry. Go through it and look. There should be a folder labeled Fear, or something like that.

well i tried . if i did have the game i would help you out...but i don't. i guess you could always buy the game again? or go about it with some of the ideas mentioned above...but be careful with those torrents...they may do more damage then you think.
