I want to start a Steam account to buy/play Dead Island and could really use some help. I'm concerned Valve's Steam software will have an effect on my nonSteam/nonValve games.
Does Steam/Valve scan and force update/patch all my games even if they are NOT on or purchased on Steam? I've heard it's possible to opt out of sharing data, but not forced updates. E.g. I don't want them monitoring and updating my Fallout 3 (retail version not Steam) install to breaking my mods, since it has nothing to do with Steam.
Thanks for any help.

The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders.That is easy.All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.It works the same way in any country.
