Actually charles, you can uninstall fine because the uninstall files are
usually just put in the games' folder separately from the setup files, ----
or the games' already been written to the registry so you can just use
I keep most things on a backup external drive, and when I was installing
games onto my laptop, I just installed them streight from the setup files on
the drive because (unlike on my desktop), I don't have the drive space to
hang on to all the setup files.
I tend to generally save files as a matter of course so that I can always
install the program again after a crash, or install it on another machine,
unless their things like program update patches, in which case I just run
As to viruses, I've never had anything nasty happen when directly running
files, and the times Avg has interfered (as with night of parasite), it also
complained when I downloaded the file.
sinse running essentially does the same thing as downloading and
saving, ---- accept that instead of saving the file in a location of your
choice then running it, it's saved, then run from the temp directory which
gets deleated every so often, i'm afraid i don't see the security difference
myself whatever internet explorer may say.
Beware the grue!
