This may seem silly, but I have heard that free online games such as addictinggames.com add spyware and malware in your computer which can cause your computer to run slow or damage your computer. Is this really true? I love playing free online games and hate to think I have to stop playing them because of this. I paid for an online game in hopes that this won't happen. The site is Pogo.com. If anyone knows of this I would like to know.

Pogo I can tell you is pretty secure. Im sure they have verisign working with them in some way.

Playing free online games will not get you any malware if you are playing them on a reputable site. If you are searching around for another game website, there is no telling what you will find.

From what I have seen, AdddictingGames is reliable as well.
If I am helping you and I do not respond within 24 hours, please send me a PM. :)
