    If you don't have time to do it right
                    ...when will you have time to do it over?

        Oh . . . I totally didn't know that.
        I've never subscribed to a topic actually.
        Thanks for the info.

           I hate it when they do the "Automatic Install" (recommended)

          or the "custom install"( in small letters, of course.(NOT RECOMMENDED) :\

          I can confirm the Yahoo tool bar in earlier versions of AVG 8, I removed it in favor of AVG 7.5, I don't like the background processes. And, nice analogy with the image DMR, For every piece of software, there's something lurking inside. Oh, the best solution when installing windows live messenger, remove windows live installer after WLM is installed. Or it'll try to update Windows Live software and such, quite bothersome, almost as bad as windows update insisting it MUST install while I'm in the middle of Counter-Strike: Source.

          I have sent a personal e-mail to every Vendor listed stating my displeasure with their marketing schemes...i've yet to recieve 1 reply but the effort is worth it.
