How will we be able to get a fresh copy of our games in the future. Even with software, my system gets various hacks, malware, etc. Equally, I purchase new systems and want to be able to obtain a fresh copy of my games (I have about 3 of them). So, will there be a url address to go to download copies? Hope so.

I am getting angry at these game sites that sell them and then after the spending fury is over, they shut down. This happened to me with
another game site. And because they reside out of the U.S.A., nothing can be done.

Is there any way I can purchase clean copies on a disk of my 3 games from the web owner?

What do you mean by obtain a fresh copy of your games? If you have the games then don't you have the CD's? The only way to purchase a game online is going to be through sites like Steam and Sprocket. Either that or order the game and have the CD's shipped to you.

The sites that you are talking about about complete scams. You pay them money and then they are gone. Bye bye $$$$$

I don't even know what you are talking about. Once you buy a game why would you need a "fresh" copy? What games are you referring to? Sounds to me like you are dealing with games nobody has really heard of by shady companies. Also, why does your system get "hacks", malware, ect? You can't really get that stuff unless you are downloading stuff you aren't supposed to. I don't even use anti virus stuff and I don't get infected because I don't download random junk that I don't know what it is.

This might be edging into territory we can't talk about here. OP, where did you get your games from?

If your computer is infested you stand no chance of having a clean copy of a downloaded program. If the system was to be properly cleaned and protected. Get the setup files and copy them to a CD or DVD..

End of subject.
