    thanks for the reply but thats for Game1, (which was a lot easier!)
    Ive already checked the comments for Game2 and it seems a lot of people got suck on level3.
    The hint for level3 was "Encrypt text in photo" which leads to a program covered in spyware.
    Which doesnt even work

    To start..
    It's not really a JPEG..
    The file extention may be .jpg but in reality it is (file) "PC bitmap data, Windows 3.x format, 271 x 303 x 24"

    The size is also correct for a bitmap of those dimensions..

    If I find the time I'll look into this some more..

    I am not going to go to that site while at work, but is it possible the picture has an "Alternate Data Stream"?

    It is worth looking into. You can used LADS to find out if it is. Good luck!
