Word of warning! The launcher for this thing installs a windows service that cannot be disabled if you want to play.
Services like the one you are complaining about are the way that Google Chrome, the latest Adobe Flash (soon Adobe Reader) use to silently update themselves without requiring the user to provide administrator credentials.

Windows 7 (and Windows Vista before it) were designed so you wouldn't NEED administrator credentials in order to do minor things such as upgrading existing applications. That Google and Adobe are apparently too lazy to program their applications correctly is one thing, but having to have an actual service running for such things is beyond ludicrous.
