I was playing Team Fortress 2 last night, and got a message that I had been kicked from the server because the connect to VAC was being denied on my computer.  I have never cheated in online games, and I was playing a Mann vs Machine server, where players play against waves of bots.   On top of that, I have had to change the settings in firefox from 'System proxy settings' to 'No proxy' many times in the past month, and window's firewall settings are completely messed up.


Here are my logs.  Thank you for your help in advance.

​Couple of questions for you. I didnt see a resident antivirus app in the logs, although I could have missed it. Do you have one installed or do you need one?

​Did you enable remote registry and create .reg files to modify the registry, like these:



​You should also update IE to version 11.0-even if you dont use it as your primary browser- its vulnerable and should be updated to the latest version.

​Whats VAC:

​"the connect to VAC was being denied on my computer"

​Iam usually only online once per day so you may not get a reply back from me until the following day.
