I still get the Carol Reed games in hard copy. No box, but a slim DVD case that has a cover design. They are also available as downloads, but so far, I've gotten the actual disks.

Thanks everyone for all the help and great advice. I have the free version of AVG and can't figure out how to make the exception for the game to download. I emailed the company for advice but they never bothered to contact me. There are other instances where I had lots of trouble with downloads and had to get refunds. I have an extremely bad taste for it and won't do it. I will stop playing games when I can't buy the boxed games. As I said "old school here". lol
Anyway, I did find most of what I was looking for in boxed games, some I had to get from the UK. But what amazes me is I got them for much less than the download cost. Go figure. And yes they are new sealed copies.

JohnBoy,

Just turn AVG off, download the game, then turn it on again.
Sites like GOG and Adventure Shop are not going to pounce on you with a virus.

I tried just now to check on the Agon games that I downloaded years ago. I still have the original emails from the website and the user name and password should I need to download them again.

I have a problem - the website isn't there. How am I supposed to reinstall the games now?

I think Google Chrome might be the culprit here. Try a different browser, Melia, if you use Chrome?

It seems that the site can be accessed in US. I lknow someone in Canada can't.
It looks like the site is country specific. lol

The first link that you gave me wouldn't load the page, but the second one for Agon did. Thanks. I'll check it out.

The link for anuman loaded ok. I'll contact them to see if they'll honor the purchase I made. Tnanks for that, too.

And I use firefox.

Edit: I was able to send an email to anuman, but the agon site didn't have any links to send messages.

Ana, your first link wouldn't load for me and the second one set off my Malwarebytes (and did not load).

oldbroad,
it set off my Malwarebytes, too. I just right clicked the Malwarebytes icon and chose to put the numerical address on the Ignore list. After that, the second one opened right up.
Not that it was a lot of use.
There's a tiny address for the company in Budapest but no way to contact Private Moon by a link or email.

Gil.
