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.

itunes always installs ipodhelper running in the background, as well as a couple other services. I have no need for a ipod/phone. Its crapware as far as I'm concerned. I can clean it out, but every update of itunes puts it right back.

Also,I wish updates and new programs that I have selected to ignore would stay ignored ... forever. I don't care if there is a new point release of safari or itunes. If I didn't want the previous one, I still don't want the current one.

Stop using crapware then. It's not like there aren't choices around that install only what you want and not what they need you to have. People keep bitching about malfunctioning software as if there were no way out. The way out is pretty clear. If you can't see it...
