    i thought it was know that when installing any program no matter how reputable you always dont install or remove the crap-addon-ware

    but this almost made me pull my tinfoil hat out of the closet

    I'm glad they were grown up enough about it to recognize the mistake and wipe it out... really irks me when companies try to justify themselves after a gaffe like that.
    Signatures make my posts look huge... but I'm not humble enough to completely remove my signature, so I kept this note explaining it.
