    LOL, A few years back I bought a disk at KMart that had like 10 small games for 10 bucks.

    I brought that sucker home and popped it in my machine and loaded the games and a ton of spyware at the same time. Man that was a rip off.:D

    I still have the disk, anybody interested. $5??? $1???? I'll give it away? :p

    I was pissed at the time. Now I know you don't get 10 games for $10 unless you get something else with it.:D

    I thought about taking the crap back but I never got around to it. If it had been a $40 game and I got spyware I would have screamed. It is bad enough to get "The way it was meant to be played" UT2K3, and McDonalds commercials and others NFSU & NFSU2.

    Thanks for all your input. I downloaded the game to CD, scanned it with NAV and installed it.

    Here is a good, safe website to download older "Abandonware Games":
    http://www.the-underdogs.org

    This has one of the most (if not "the" most) comprehensive collection of older games that are no longer supported in all genres. It also has a wide selection of freeware games too. This site has been up since 1996, at least, and has an excellent established reputation.
