Malware, not mailware. The prefix mal- from the Latin malus, mala, malum; a 1st/2nd declension adjective meaning bad, evil wicked. Hence malware is bad software. In Gamespy's case, it's bad presumably because it's slow, requires registration, and supports the evil empire, i.e. IGN/Gamespy.

Try again. Malware means the program is designed to specifically harm, injure, disrupt or otherwise screw up your system. It doesn't mean "bad software"...
