If it was, then Spy Bot Search and Destroy or Adaware would catch it, it doesn't even request for internet access, only at times when getting the new skin or whatever.

thats what i thought...thanx

These measures should help you out greatly. A lot of what you have installed I noticed is spyware. Things like Stardock; Ypager; windows messenger is fine... but just be careful of what you D/L install from the I-net as it can sometimes be bloated or just plain nasty spyware.
got it from this post:
