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.

Oh, c'mon, the problem isn't that it might get installed. The problem is that the updater notifies it like "Oh, here's this update for your software!" When you clearly haven't installed it on the first place. One thing is to offer it, but making it look like a software update is another very different thing.
