Getting kicked for anti cheat violation when not cheating?

I've had the game since release and uninstalled for space. I noticed it was getting positive attention as of lately and decided to reinstall. Come to find out, i cant even play the game. I get into a lobby, sit for 20 seconds lagging to hell then get kicked for anti cheat violation or failed steam authentication. I have ethernet connected to a FIOS router so its not an internet issue. I don't even have cheat engine.
