Hi LenG,

I don't know what OS everyone else is using, but I have these files left on my computer and I have Win ME.

I had the files and I am using XP. They were left by Black Mirror.

I found the patch at filefron.com. While it is slightly off topic I recently read a posting about hidden files being placed in temp internet files. We probably all clean the visible ones up regularly but if you go to the folder and do a wild card search (where file name is *.*) you may turn up a whole bunch of stuff you didn't know was there. I found 14,000 files. It took five minutes to delete them. Don't send them to the recycle bin or they will be hidden again and you will have to go to unhide files to delete them. Of course maybe everybody but me knew this, but, oh well. All other factors aside I am really enjoying Black Mirror.

Just a quick PS on removing the Starforce garbage. After I used the sfclean I looked at device manager, and the four "devices" were still listed. I had to manually uninstall each one. Probably makes no difference to my machine, but it made me feel better. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Razz]" src="tongue.gif" />

I have just finished playing The Black Mirror. My intention is to un-install the game. Should I just leave the StarForce files there for the time being?

To Grandpa68 from another gramps! wink

As a matter of interest .............

**** (a) Have you seen ANY (or all) of the following 5 files anywhere on your hard disk(s)?
prosync1.vxd, prosync1.sys, sfhlp01.sys, prohlp02.sys, prodrv06.sys

**** (b) What Operating System are you using?

If the answer to (a) is positive, I think it would be best to apply sfclean.exe AFTER you've uninstalled Black Mirror, otherwise you may (???) get problems with your USB sometime in the future.
However before implementing my 'advice', please get confirmation from somebody more competent than I am, e.g. Jenny100 who is a tech whizz (and very helpful)!

If you're going to be playing another game that uses StarForce right away, then you might as well leave them there. Otherwise, run sfclean.exe to get rid of them.

No I'm not a tech whiz.
You're confusing me with my brother, which is not advisable.
