    I like to keep my computer very secure to the point of abnormal paranoia however that doesn't stop me playing my online games. Recently my antivirus and antispyware tools have listed Gamespy arcade as medium risk spyware:wtf: with the reason that it takes personal information from you and the like.

    To my knowledge it definitely is not spyware and is very useful especially for older games, does anyone know otherwise?

    GS arcade is spyware free, though it might track you when you click its advertisments...but not a biggie...
