I installed setpoint for my mouse, 2 days later I get a hassleware popup on a reboot to register, there is no option to tell the regtistration program to stick it.

This is nearly as annoying as Microsoft's Live "Essentials" crapware package.

So was the point that you like to whine/complain about things that you CAN fix, and just choose NOT to? Sounds like it to me. You complained, I gave you the answer, you got pissy about that, well who doesn't make sense now?

It's a complaint that forced registration pop-ups are horrible.

Which is the better solution? (Note that I didn't say easier!)

1) Company stops putting crap in their software?

2) End user disables crap through an end runaround.

drainbread: you should look up the address for the company and register it to there.

The stupid part is that it takes seconds to register the app, and it allows them to contact you in the event you need an urgent update, or a cool new one, a bug fix, or if you need to contact them regarding issues you're having, etc., but yet you complain that they're trying to make you do so by not allowing you to disable such a thing. Just register and it'll go away, simple as that. it's pathetic really. It's not crap of them to do that, it's kinda smart really.

What happens when you need to reinstall or update the software?

What happens when you need to reinstall Windows?

Put a link in the software menu, encourage people to register, just don't be annoying about it.

Yes. Ever heard of newer versions of software? Backups won't fix that.

Yeah, cuz it's really that hard to update afterward... The point is, drainbread is bitching about something, just to bitch about it. He knows the fix, he knows how simple it is really, yet he chooses to bitch about it when he knows that nobody really cares, because we all know he's doing so just for the sake of attention, so stop bro, it's pointless.

Really?

Attention seeking? Fuck off you jackass.

Bullshit argument is bullshit, I chose who gets my contact info, period.

There is a reason I don't get spam.

This is the fucking dogpound you dickless fucktard, the point of this subforum is to bitch about something you don't like that a company pulls.

Can't call it forced unless it absolutely allows no other option whatsoever. This would require them to disallow you to have any runarounds whatsoever, such as using CCleaner or disabling the registration through msconfig, etc. Nobody's forcing anything, you're just making a mountain out of a molehill. :sends virtual cheese and crackers to you:

Well, this is an online forum, not a cave or a bridge, so unless you're talking to a little toy with poofy hair and a funny face, then you're sadly confused. QUITE sad really. Oh well.

You really want to keep this going, don't you...

Fine.

This is the most bullshit argument yet, there is a work around for everything, don't feel like tying your windows key to your hardware, hell it only takes about 30 seconds and a reboot, you won't even have to activate windows afterwards.

Lost the key to some software you bought 10 years ago and the company is dead or giving you the runaround, snag a key generator and run it sandboxed, fuck it, you were stupid for even paying for it.

So you downloaded some trial software and want to extend the time you can use it, just fire up your registry editor.

and on

and on

and on

Kind of like having facebook applications tracking your profile 24/7 without your consent. Oh wait...they already do.
