    The below is a fix I found for this that worked for me :)

    The problem was that the installer had created a registry key at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/Activision, and set the permissions that only the SYSTEM user could change it. So when I input my keycode in MP it was unable to save it in registry (which explains why it always disappeared. So I just gave full authority to the Administrator group on that key and voila it was fixed.

    If you don't know how to do this:
    Start->Run->type regedit->hit OK.
    Find the key in the tree on the left side.
    Right click -> Permissions... -> Advanced
    Select the user/group in the list
    Put a check in Full control
