i think that the adware was like "aphex" or something like that

if you scan it though it says its adware

but does it work? im just curious as i am about to open ports from my router to let it work for me

It might be mislabeled. I have an account on iwon.com that changes something on my computer which Ad-Aware and SpyBot flag as something to be aware of.

Anyway, I haven't used Gamespy in a while so not sure. If you got the free version, then there might be something but probably benign.

but answer me this (my mom is not convinced)

she says

"if it would be safe, then why wont it let you delete some things on there that norton is uncomfortable with?"

that drew a blank for me Confused

I'm not exactly understanding the question, but if it's "why can't I delete the adware", it might be because of the license agreement. If you got the free version of Gamespy, the agreement probably says something to the effect that you agree to put the ad thing on your machine in exchange for it being free (presumably, the pay version of Gamespy doesn't have it but I don't know for sure since I don't have the pay version). So if you delete it, you might cause Gamespy to stop working.

Just a guess though.
