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 think Apple is just an example. Anyone can name even more. Buy an HP notebook and you'll see all the crap and autoupdaters installed by default. One autoupdater does nothing, 10 of them do, both in your battery life, in memory consumption, network polling, etc. It all contributes to make you, the user, more and more disatisfied with your experience.

I hate to say this - I know it will probably annoy some people here - but if you don't like crapware why don't you just get a Mac and relax?
