Wow, Furious maybe next you should rip half the plug out on your hard drive while it's running and take it back if anything wierd happens.
Thanks for assuming that I was crying conspircy theory asshole. All I was trying to do is NOT have STEAM run while I played a game that did not need (or should not need) an internet connection, or for me to have to jump through hoops to not have STEAM run to play a SP version of a game. I never said I thought STEAM was spyware, so fuck off. Yes, I'm sure fucktards like yourself need utility programs like STEAM to do everything for you. Go plug yourself back into the Valve machine and spread the good word brother, amen.
