I haven't seen it, if it does feel free to show me. I will uninstall it straight away and reinstall it into a Sandbox with Firefox and other various programs.
Scanning the HDD isn't too big a deal, its the uploading it to others part without my permission. Which is partially solved by using programs like Sandboxie.
You just ignored everything I said.
Neither STEAM or Origin uploads data without your permission. I never was saying STEAM is uploading files without your permission. I'm simply saying it does the SAME scan Origin does. It doesn't access files.
Both programs are proven to not upload files without your permission. Where have you been?
Origin certainly doesn't upload data to a non-EA website. If you're implying that, where did you come up with that?
Do you know what procmon (Process Manager) is? You were certainly running your mouth off as if you did, but clearly... you don't.
Oh, and the scan STEAM did happened the second I turned STEAM on regardless of what checks I have. You don't have a say in the scan. There is no "choice."Edited by OmegaNemesis28 - 1/15/12 at 8:57pm
