       Hi. There's a VERY simple way to make the dream of a "completely pure & virginal system" happen.

       The cost is about $6US.

       The problem is that it MUST be done BEFORE You actually connect Your computer to the internet for the first time.

       The reason is that absolutely everything Your computer does / has done online is tracked by it's networking device's "MAC address".

       The answer to this problem is to buy this for $5US & ONLY use it go online with, ever :

    https://www.amazon.com/s?k=usb+wifi&s=price-asc-ra...

       Then buy a blank CDR / DVDR to burn a bootable linux OS onto & run Your system from every time it goes online (with the USB adapter)

    anywhere except through a genuine, pure game or software package direct connection for updating or other such registrations & things. (Non-generic webpages / connections).

       I recommend Puppy linux, closed session burn, so no cookies or other straggler files can be saved to the system.

       Then You can be ensured Your original hardware MAC address is pure for any direct connections to specific servers.

                 G'Luck!!!
