Well I hope it arrives in the next 24hrs when I get home for work , in the meantime is there anything I can do to dodge the hassles I keep seeing?
Is it worth setting up a steam account now or does that only happen when I install the game, I'm only interested in the Offline game.

I'd say set up your steam account ahead of time.  Took me a while when I installed last night.  Btw, the game is excellent so far.

The general rule of thumb - uninstall any type of CD emulation software you might have installed (Alcohol 120, Deamon Tools, etc), as most copy protection software nowadays can detect that. Or at least get the current versions. That's also why products like these update every other week, as they keep upgrading to get past those checks.
