I'm gonna go with this one Alex. Like any other modern free trade corporation. Top to bottom. Only interested in making money.

It's the truth, deal with it.

i had to reinstall windows last night. i also had to reinstall origin.

i procmon'd the whole installation process. i found that origin does query C:\\users\\xxxx

i dont know the reasoning behind it doing queries in those directories. but i personally never keep anything in default windows directories anyway.

i wish we could get more light shed on this fiasco.

i personally like playing BF3, and at the moment dont mind origin.

i also procmonn'd origin.exe after the install for ~2 hours and found nothing out of the ordinary.

here a screen of originsetup.exe

I hate origin and steam. Or any other program I HAVE to have open to launch another program.

I got origin when I got BFBC2

but these corps do record a bunch of user info, as there lisence agrements actually say

its just a matter of time before these turn me off from using these instrusive programs, I have origin and steam disabled upon win7 startup, but they still record the info they wish when started

this is about much more than stopping priacy, the tech laws are fundamentely about information flow between average people (the working slaves of the state enfornced private central banksters)

The question is why does EA want/need some much MORE access to our data than everyone else?
Its all about CYA with legalities. They might not need extra access to anything, but they leave themselves a door in case they ever do. EULA is made to protect the company, not the individual using the product.

Also in keeping their money, so they make a very open EULA that gives them room to work, without being sued all the time over specifics.

It's hard to pay attention to these things, most people don't even look at TOS or agreements when installing software, and you have to with near anything. What about google's policies? anyone wanna wade through their contracts and see what they can potentially collect from you?

Yep, I have no problem with origin; I actually have quite a few games on it from their sales.

Don't even care if they are checking out my pc; I don't have a credit card and I live paycheck to paycheck so if someone whats to go through the trouble to steal all of like $400 bucks for my checking account, I doubt it. I have nothing to hide.

I would think scanning for external programs would be hacks. Or hacking programs.
Worse than crack.
