Imagine my surprise when the WinZip installer displayed the dialog below.
I suppose I should be grateful that WinZip cares enough to offer to install some extra software to make sure that my system is secure. However, I’m already using security software that I’m happy with. When I’m installing software that I’ve paid for, like WinZip, I don’t see the need to install extra third-party software from “carefully selected partners.”
Seriously WinZip, if the license fees that I pay to you aren’t enough to cover a single license to WinZip then please raise my license fees so that I don’t have to deal with this crap. Among many problems with this approach: Your preferred partners may NOT be MINE.
