Subject: Beware Yee Who Purchased Pool Of Radiance

For those of you who purchased Ubisoft's Pool of Radiance: The Ruins of Myth Drannor, BEWARE! Adrenaline Vault is reporting a serious problem with the games install/uninstall feature that could possibly make your computer wipe out important Windows files. Snip:

We have uncovered a probable bug in the installation program for PoR that could wipe out a user's Windows 9x system files during the uninstallation process. During our installation of PoR, the install program locked up the computer, forcing a reboot. After this, the PoR installation program would only give the option to uninstall the game; at this time, the program also wiped out our Win98 SE system files and would not reinstall the game. A further bug was uncovered in the installation program that prevents the user from installing to any directory other than the default.
Basically, if you install the game and decide you don't like it, DON'T UNINSTALL IT!
