I covered this a few posts back. Rebooting your computer is worthless as cheats are unloaded when you close the game.

The logic is that you could be running a cheat separately from your game, and when you quit the game the cheat would continue to run. Then joining a VAC-secured game with the cheat still running will cause the ban.

asm has said that the cheats quit when the game quits, and perhaps they do. I don't know, but in all honesty rebooting just to be safe seems like a small price to pay compared to a permanent ban because you used an unscrupulous cheat. Plus, as CTRL ALT DEL mentioned earlier, his statement of rebooting the computer was made to "covers nearly all cheats not just injectors, my advice is on how not to get banned, not how to maybe avoid a ban."

Why should a Virtual Machine get you banned? The answer is a definite Nope.avi.

Can you get banned for MS Visual Studio running? They have code debuggers and all that stuff.

I'm actually (well was) reading this for someone else however I'd like to know can editing screenshots affect vac/disable in any way? As in editing then uploading them from steam folder?

As long as you dont have your running game, or even Steam in a debugger, it won't care even if you have OllyDbg running.

AFAIK you can debug a VAC-enabled Source game in Visual Studio. I've had VAC-enabled third-party mods running in the debugger and haven't been banned.
