Digital River / Purevideo / inquiry about purevideo

My hard drive crashed recently, and I have been slowly rebuilding roughly 300GB of information I lost. One of the applications that was lost in this was Nvidia's purevideo. I also lost all of my emails. So I thought I would try nvidia's tech support to try and get it back. Little did I know that they've outsourced to Digital River, a very large download-on-demand company that does business with Microsoft, Nvidia, etc.

Electronic Arts?!?! I sent this about Nvidia's purevideo application
that I downloaded from! How did you come up with
Electronic Arts? Look it up again. I know you've got the information in
your database that I DID purchase and download one of Nvidia's
Purevideo applications. I paid between $20-30 for the application, and I
demand that I get the original download information from that purchase.
If you need a credit card number OR any information corresponding to the
purchase, I'll be happy to oblige. However, sending me an email that you
don't handle customer service for a company that I didn't mention
ANYWHERE in my email is unacceptable.

Either try again, or I will be corresponding with nvidia directly about
this issue.

(deleted) and that doesn't work either. I need help. I
know I purchased the software, but I do not have what I need to
redownload it (My Hard drive crashed, so I lost all my emails, including
the one confirming my order.) If you need the credit card number, I may
still have it (old debit card that's been replaced recently) Please
