Skype (skype.com) is one of these internet telephony applications. It has no spyware payload and is dead simple to setup and use.

As I've got it running in the corner of my PC already, I just wondered if anyone else uses it instead of Roger Wilco or whatever.

It uses too much bandwidth mate, but fantastic communication software indeed... as far as sound quality goes, best i`v seen http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

It hogs also lots of CPU to procude the famous sound quality.

I ran Pest Patrol, CWShredder & HiJackThis after installing it and they registered nothing. I haven't had any pop ups either http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

curious if an app has spy/adware? The best thing you can do is look it up on google before you d/l it. check forums and support sites for info. Also there are sites like cleansoftware.org (http://www.cleansoftware.org/). While it doesn't mention skype in particular, it's good for future reference.

Skype is good to chat with but no good to use as voice comms in the game, as mentioned it uses too much bandwidth.
