Would like to ask if any of you have been to this site and used it, for old games.

http://www.old-games.com

I went on the other day and tried to take out a 30 day subscription, to download some old games.

I did it through PayPal, but my anti virus went nuts and said there was a threat. So I couldn't get any further. Unless I of course turn of my AV.

So as anybody had any issues with this site.

Thank you

TP 👍😁

i would stay away from that site. Defenitely don't pay to download anything that is free/abandonware already. There are many other sites that do pretty much the same like  
https://www.oldpcgaming.net/ (which is free). But if you want to be completely safe I'd stick to trustworthy sites like GOG for old games. You never know what comes with the download from those unknown abandonware site.

Oops as they say and thanks for the warning. Just so easy how you can pick up unwanted virus and even worse been hacked. Even for someone as experienced as me. Will keep well away.

Thanks for the links Millennium too. Look really good and what I wanted 👍👍

TP 😁
