Just give it a chance before crying about it, nah, just cry about it and post on the forums on how much you going to quit blah blah blah.
Well more fool you. Arc does indeed install spyware to your pc, not only that, it also installs Panda which is a peer to peer program. If you have data limits you are stuffed, because Panda is constantly using your internet to upload parts of Arc to other users..

Also Arc is constantly spying on your activity within your pc. Every time you click on something, it sends what program/game/document name to PWE. It also scans your pc on regular intervals, and then sends the data to them as well.

Just because you want to be blissfully unaware of what is going on, some of us want to know...

Branflakes has not even giving us any updates in quite a few pages not even a customary we are taking your feedback on board type of mail. All in all I think PWE are going to push ARC onto all members if we like it or not.

The cynic in me is thinking they are using the freebies and sales with the lobi store to lead us all in a false sense of security before saying it is going mandatory as a way to cushion the blow.
Either that or tying those sales to only Arc users. Cryptic/PWE are not above making such a stupid move...
