I'd like the devs to explain why their DRM software stays on your system even after the game has been removed.

Explanation wouldn't change a thing. I'm OK with them using Denuvo. But I am not OK with any software remaining on my machine if I choose to uninstall it. That's not negotiable and I don't care about any explanation they come up with. This is a red flag for me. I see that behavior as malware.

Good thing I wasn't planning on getting either game. Now I for sure won't. I don't care how meaningless the file that remains is, If I uninstall the game it should just go.

You can just manually remove associated files later, it's does generally state this when you uninstall a program "Some files where not removed but can be manually removed"

I'm guessing many on here never went through the early AOL days where to remove it entirely you needed to format your drive

That's not the point, many people aren't good with computers, even casual gamers and I can bet that many of those people won't know how to remove the files that were left behind. If you uninstall this DRM software everything should be removed during the process

So now I have to make a routine sweep of my programs and files after I uninstall a game? Come on, is piracy really that big of an issue? It is alredy bad enough that I have punkbuster on my system in three places for a game that I got as a temporary BETA, but this is getting excessive

If that's the case they should write that down as well so we can be sure. But they didn't do that, so it's fair to assume that it's a funky piece of software that refuses to be removed manually.

No problem at all. I'm not even doing anything suspicious or does my PC even slowdown by the leftover few kb files.

Nothing to hide, nothing to fear.

Not to mention usually the left over files are user related configuration that they will reuse if you reinstall the program. Probably a unique identifier for statistic purpose to figure out how many new users over time using it, how many removed completely etc etc.

Don't be too paranoid guys, no one wants to spy on your fetishes.

That's the thing, They haven't said what the files left behind are or do.

For all we know they could infact be using system resources.

Can I send you a keylogger and backdoor program please ? You have nothing to hide and don't mind your privacy being violated so this will be ok right ?
