  • MS AntiSpyware question regarding demo

    I downloaded the demo from the TG Member Download area. I've just installed it.

    The latest version of MS AntiSpyware is asking me the following question after I've installed the ageia PhysX driver:

    A startup program trayicon.exe requires your approval.

    Name: trayicon.exe
    Path: c:\program files\ageia technologies\trayicon.exe
    It wants to know if I should allow this or block it. Despite a "spyware" program's complaints, I have no security concerns here... I just don't want something happening at startup if it's not absolutely necessary.

    My question is: can I play this game without whatever "trayicon.exe" is running?

    I realize the game just came out. But I figure there's no harm in asking.

    You cats playing the demo... do you have a process named "trayicon.exe" running at any point during your gameplay?

      You can turn off the trayicon in the ageia settings.

        Does doing so prevent the process from running, or does it merely hide the icon, leaving the process running?

              Looks like the GRAW demo tries to "ping" a server on installation to count installations all over the world.

              Also the aegia physx driver tries to connect to the internet during installation (possible for a ping or checking for updates). Whatever it is doing on a verisign website i do not know.

              You can check http://crl.verisign.com for yourself. Interestingly the robots.txt disallows search robots.

              Here are two examples of the Physx driver installation:
