So is Origin doing this in the US or is it just Germany?

Set this up this morning. Seems to do the trick.. I would recommend to those who don't want your PC scanned, but want to play BF3.

It needs to be noted, in the video posted, that was the Origin Setup file. So if you're opening Origin after it's installed, it won't (maybe at some point it will) reflect the same thing.

DONT get me wrong - i would love to play BF3 too! We are all fans of the series - but the cons weight more this time - than the fun we would have for some hours. Its not about BF3 its about Origin and the behaviour of EA!

If we dont do anything this time - publisher will have spyware as standard tool tomorrow in every game.

whats not to say Steam or any other program does this?

i dont know...all seems very fishy to me to be honest...now im no fan of EA or Origin...but this seems like a witch hunt right before Halloween

now i know we've all seen the weird worded EULA from EA/Origin...but honestly...im sure there are lots of programs that do a quick scan to see whats what in the computer to make sure there arent any conflicts or what not...im just sayin...lets look at this from a non-biased approach

EDIT: you claim this is spyware...but i see nothing going on with the actually use of Origin...seems to be its just accessing its normal files when its needed...its not going out and hunting for information from all programs on the computer

this is what the process monitor shows while Origin is running...the process shown in the screen shot just keep repeating its self

Do you actually know what it is doing with the data? Is it just scanning across files, or taking data from them and reporting it back?

I mean, it's all well and good making claims, but do you actually, really know what is happening here? As someone said, it is the Origin setup file.

I tried a method of getting this to work, but Origin kept failing with errors when I tried to boot. Perhaps I missed something, but I'm sure I did follow the directions to a t...

Have a link to set it up for use with Origin?

But, seriously, i'm interested to see what happens here. Not because I particularly care about what is happening, more from a PR and marketing perspective.
We are currently in the middle of that bridge. You lost the race if we crossed the bridge.

The ToS is worldwide, we dont have (yet) a ToS just for Germany itself. That means you had to agree to the same ToS like we are having trouble with. Sadly the US Gov. doesnt care much about this, but I cant speach much on that since I dont know much about - so I better keep my mouth shut.

I respect the Germans for standing up for their rights and laws unlike those in the US and UK.
