Microsoft It's late here, but we're having election night, and the two leading parties are currently tied seat-wise, with a 10000-vote difference. Anyway, it gives me some time to cover a major problem: Microsoft is at it again. The company has pushed an update through Windows Update which silently, without user consent, installs two browser extensions - one for Internet Explorer, and one for Firefox.

This is vary easy code to implement, and vary important. Look at it this way. If it was an accident as you claim then it is incompetence on Microsoft's part. If it was purposeful then it was a malicious act. Either way it is not good. And ask yourself which OS would you like to protect your bank account an incompetent one or malicious one?
