Possible fix for broken end-game achievements

I noticed a few people say the 3 achievements for beating the game glitched for them and became permanently locked. I *may* have a workaround for you, but they didn't glitch on me so it hasn't been tested.

However, one of our boosters for the MP achieves had the one for Killing Frenzy glitch on him. He got killing frenzies multiple games and the achievement didn't pop. After our boosting sessions were over I had him exit to the main menu, sign out of his gamergag in windows live, and delete his gamertag from the computer within the windows live options. After that, he uninstalled Halo 2 PC. He then made sure to DELETE all files associated with it. Even when you uninstall it, it leaves the in-game 'characters' or 'profiles' that you create to play the game on your hard drive. So when you reinstall it they're still there and so is their campaign progress. So, after uninstalling make sure you delete EVERYTHING having to do with Halo 2 PC.

Next, uninstall Games for Windows Live completely.

Now, reinstall H2PC and GFWL, go through all the necessary updates to both. Once done, recover your gamertag to your computer again. You'll have to play all the way through the campaign yet again, so unless you're a completionist all this work isn't really worth it, but I have a feeling this will fix it. This method fixed his glitched Killing Frenzy achievement. It's gotta be a similar problem, aka loosing connection to live and having it incorrectly tracking your progress.
Landed on exactly 500,000/500,000gs with exactly 18500 achievements and exactly 500 games. All 100% including DLC. Was going hard the first half of January to reach that goal! Finished it on 1-19-2016. Final achievement: Completion Serenity in Nero.
