Why was this topic closed before the OP was able to clarify where his game was downloaded from? http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic352881.html
Some of my games are downloaded as ISO files. An ISO file needs to be burned to a disk, then installed from that disk not from the downloaded ISO file. For example this download is quite legit and is an ISO file, not an illegal copy: http://fighterace.ketsujin.com/
It seems presumptuous and insulting to imply that someone is trying to install illegal software without knowing all of the facts.

I'm not big on pirating software so I'm not familiar with the term 'Warez'. Maybe the user isn't familiar with it either. Did anyone bother to explain it to him? As far as I'm concerned, buying a game from a download site is looking for trouble. I haven't found a game yet that I couldn't wait a few days for and have a genuine copy delivered right to my front door. I've waited as long as four days with no adverse effects. No panic attacks, no irregular heartbeat, no loss of sleep. Kids these days! When will they ever learn?
