I have the exact same problem.

I "fixed" it by renaming the system validation program (sorry! I don't remember which file it is and I'm too tired to look!). Then when I loaded up SC:C it'd just say, "error system validation program not found" but the actual program would work.

The only problem with this is the game would only use one core. After every loading screen I'd have to alt+tab out and change the affinity of the process via task manager so that it'd use all 4 cores.
