Gahhh! Everything is Bloteware.

I went to update Shockwave player.... Downloaded the installer, looked at the check boxes for components.....
Unchecked the box to install Google toolbar.....
Unchecked the box to install Norton PC checkup.....
Wait....
What?
What do those two have to do with Shockwave? All three of them are from different companies. The only relation they have is THE INTERNET.

Nvidia's drivers come with portal download links.

Lenovo's desktops come preloaded with trails of Office that ACTUALY BREAK YOUR SYSTEM.

For once I would like to download a program and get only that program.

Would you like a free blender rental with your car purchase today?

I know what you mean. I downloaded Apple Quicktime and now it keeps wanting me to add iTunes and some other Applish junk software. Trojan horse marketing. :-p
