I've also been told that there's no way to work around it, like manually editing the registry, installing a keyfile, adding a cookie manually or whatever. But there was an update (coming "next week" last month) that would definitely fix it.
That update arrived today. I clicked the link, but it refused to download - "This feature is only available in TechTracker Plus."
Has anyone else had similar problems and suffered Cnet's abysmal support? Has anyone found a workaround?
