Apple If you have Apple's QuickTime media player and/or iTunes installed on your Windows machine, you might want to keep an eye on apple's Software Update tool. Apple is once again using the update tool to push unwanted software onto users' machines without asking for permission.

I go to update Quicktime and find the update utility presenting iTunes and a third app unrelated to quicktime presented - and selected. I wouldn't have a problem with the updater simply presenting the additional software but it's an Opt-Out approach where the user must deselect the unwanted software. That makes it unacceptable.
