Virus issues? *UPDATED*

Summary: I have played trials of this game before, and loved the parts I was able to play. When I tried to open the game, however, my antivirus popped a warning up stating that the game had a virus on it called Win32/Heur. I immediately uninstalled the game and scanned my computer.
Summary: Purchased it, recieved it, put it on my computer, started to play it and my computer shut down! Cause- the game introduced a nice bug via the games bar you had to download to play the game. Needless to say, I really would'nt advise buying this game. Wasted time, money and patience!
Summary: This is quite a disappointment given how very wonderful Midnight Mysteries: Devil on the Mississippi (about Mark Twain) was. The art is so-so, and it's basically one Hidden Object scene after another, with few and not terribly good puzzles.
Summary: I really enjoyed the Houdini and Mark Twain games in this series but this Poe one is really a let down.My first problem with it is that it is much shorter and feels like only half of a game compared to the other two I have played.
Summary: not a good game for me. It is just HO scene after HO scene and weird "conversations" with ghosts inbetween. I often had no idea why I had to search for items at a place and I often quit the game because I just didn´t want to search endlessly for obscurely hidden objects anymore.
Summary: This game didn't do it for me. The graphics and the moody music are there, so those are pluses, as is the hint system with the raven (with the cat hissing and scratching at you if you go on a random click search). But I just couldn't get into the game.
Summary: Looks like I am also in the minority here. I purchased this game because I love spooky HOGs. But the spooky factor in this game is only about 25% of it before it evolves to regular, non-scary scenes. In this game, the artwork is lavish and the background sounds are excellent.
