  Online games cheats could be banned
Updated 29 August 2002, 15.43

Cheating at online games could soon become a thing of the past if gaming companies get their way.

They have come up with some clever software which will be able to spot who is not playing fair and throw them off the server.

  Do you use gaming cheats? Click here to tell us about it!

It will also be able to stop people from logging back on for at least 24 hours after being chucked off.

The software was developed for a game called Counter-Strike but could be rolled out for other games soon.

But many complain that online cheats actually help improve a person's game and some could be thrown off unnecessarily when in fact they are just very good.
