Nothing really to cry about, i always tell my children to read first, think second, click third. Everyone not your family seems to want your money first and everything else second. That's how the world goes today. No surprise imho.
Of course we chould cry about it. Enduring it silently just makes it okay. If people get murdered in one part of town the solution is not to 'make sure to never go there'.
With this shitware, it can really happen to anyone. Sure, it happens to "casual users" more frequently and PC-savy users tend to get their noses in the air because of that. But with all the crap you have to click through to get some software installed, and with the increasingly unintuitive - i.e. stealthy, underhanded, fraudulant - placements of the options for the shitware, it happens to power users as well. It used to be shitware checkboxes were placed on their very own page of the installer, or at least near some other "Agree to install"-checkboxes, but now they often get buried on busy pages that look like fluff.
And some of this shitware is a bitch to get off your hard disk. I recently had to remove a "registry cleaner" from my dads PC. That thing had the mandatory uninstall .exe that Windows requires, but all that .exe did was display a message "uninstall.exe not found". Very funny. Manually trying to delete the program folder wasn't possible either, because I somehow lacked permissions. I had to boot that damned PC into safe mode and dreaded having to find a Linux boot CD had that not worked.
That shitware came bundled with Google Chrome on some shady software depot site. I always tell my dad to not install anything without my assistance, but the old man is stubborn that way.
