Refuse to pay for spyware/adware,
This review is from: Need for Speed Carbon Collector's Edition - PC (Video Game)
The reviews have been mostly good to lukewarm but being a fan of the overall NFS series I was about to purchase this game until learning EA will insert REAL-TIME advertising into my computer via the Internet. It was bad enough to see all the lame ads for retailers and products in earlier games but there is something inherently wrong with purchasing a game and then being forced to watch ads in order to play it. As far as I am concerned, they should be paying me to watch their stupid ads.
Even if the game were free I am not sure I would play it due to all the security holes and exploits these types of programs have the potential to create. This is a slippery slope I refuse to be a part of and EA will not get my business as long as they continue this policy.

You should be running a firewall anyway, just block NFS Carbon from talking to the Internet. Unless you want to play online, then that won't work.
