I just installed a halo trial version

  1. by going on gamespyarcade.com. after i downloaded it my virus protector thing (mcafee) said that the halo file was a pup (potentionally unwanted program) or something like that and so it asked if i wanted to trust it or throw it away. so i said throw it away because i was kinda scared.

    After all this the virus scanner told me to scanner told me to scan so i scanned my computer and it found 8 adware things from the website gamespyarcade.com. Obviously im no computer genious im actually wat i call "computer dumb" lol. So should i be worried? or should i continue playing my game without worrying?

    please give me ur oppion

    Thank you :D

    well i scanned my computer with AVG and McAfee and i cleaned also. it says that there were no infections or anything.

    Then i asked my friend from knight47.com and he told me it was probably just a tracking cookie

    You could download a clean trial version from Microsoft itself and be free of Gamespyware. See here.
