StopBadWare.org, an organization sponsored in part by the Berkman Center, has put AOL 9.0 onto its list of malefactors because
it installs additional software without telling the user, it forces the user to take certain actions, it adds various components to Internet Explorer and the taskbar without disclosure, it may automatically update without the user’s consent, and it fails to uninstall completely.
That’s a big, gutsy step. But don’t those same criteria mean that Windows XP should be on the list? [Tags: stopbadware aol ]
