He bought the game. He has a right to play the product in which he purchased. I have not discussed anything illegal because a legal purchase has been made and I suspect the problem is Securom, thus this is a discussion about troubleshooting. Isolation of the object suspected at fault, in this case Securom, is the best way to troubleshoot.
Before you insult my intelligence by posting a canned response from MaxisCactus, read what this person typed. He installed on 2 computers previously, installed on a third, reinstalled multiple times, changed profiles and permissions, and therefore it is guaranteed now that he's used up his activation limit. 2 desktop installs + 1 laptop install + 3 re-installations on multiple profiles is over the limit. This person is running out of time before deployment, there is no activation revocation tool, and there is no painless way to acquire a new activation to the product you purchased.
Tonosp0r, you could also try calling EA and when they give you a hard time, accuse them of not supporting our brave service men and women. You might get an accelerated response with that kind of approach.
EDIT: Sorry to slam the door on you, but since this person has multiple computers and was able to get the game running on other machines without issue (particularly an XP64 machine), the chance the router is interfering is almost negligible.
