    How did i get banned?

    Hey folks.

    So here is the deal, when i got BO (long time ago, just never thought of asking this question untill now ) i got banned 2 weeks after. At first i thought it was conenction problems as it says "unable to connect bla bla bla" but then i checked my VAC status thing on steam which said "VAC bans on record". So yea, i got VAC banned.
    First off, i will have to say that i never EVER cheated on the account that i bought BO on. Also, BO was the only game installed and i created the account the same day i got the game.
    On my previous account though, i used MW2 Liberation to unlock console and use mods (nothing abusive, mainly just fun mods private matches), that account got VAC'ed (and i mean COMPLETELY VAC'ed, couldn't play online on any games (CSS, L4D w/e)).

    My question is, was i banned because of my previous account, or because some program on my computer was detected as a hack (again, i swear, i did NOT download any hacks for anything before i got banned).

    Also please don't troll me saying "hacker noob" etc. I know for sure that i did not use any hacks except liberation (is it a hack really?) and i am only asking this of pure interest, also i'm not trying to whine about being banned.
    S.S.D.D

    Yea, but still, it was on a second account that had absolutely no relation to the account that was banned because of liberation. Also i deleted liberation from my system after i got VAC'ed in MW2. So unless the ban was based on information stored in files on my computer i don't really see how i could get banned because of my old account (IP bans? Doubt it...)

    maybe the process was still running when you launched BO and VAC might have identified the process

    I happened to restart my computer between the 2 months i spent waiting for BO to be released (without liberation of course ^^).
    Edit: I also deleted Liberation after i got VAC'ed from MW2, so ya, the process could not have been running

    Trust me, i'm over it. If you look away from the few annoying facts about MW2 it's waaay better than BO, so i don't really care about my ban, it's just pretty annoying
    Edit: Also as i mentioned, i am getting banned from everything, which leaves steam completely useless for me. Unless i can find the source that.... bans me, i won't be able to use it for anything.

    Also for clarification, i was VAC'ed from MW2 on one account which also had other games like CSS, and i got VAC'ed in all of those games. When i bought black ops, 2 months later, there was no trace of liberation on my computer (unless it creates files outside of its launch folder) and it was on a new account which had no connection to the old account (other than data that steam might have stored on my computer).

    Maybe you should have read my other posts in this topic and maybe be a little bit helpful instead of just "telling me what i said i can't do".

    The thing is, i only "hacked" in MW2 yet im getting banned on all my new accounts on all games, my goal is not to be unbanned, im not whining or anything... I just wanna know what got me banned and how i can fix this so that i wont be banned next time i buy a steam game.

    If you are steam banned for one game (VAC'ed) I believe you can't play online on any steam game as long as you are on the same account
