This program also installs some type of monitoring executable, which runs in the background all the time, monitoring whether the program is up to date. There is no such executable listed among the files noted here; so I suppose the program installs some type of registry key which starts the background program automatically, so the user has no idea that it's running when it does. As such, it must be considered a form of malware, because reputable software does not need to hide itself from the users. Software behavior like this can be the cause of program conflicts which become huge problems for users, because another program does not run correctly, and we do not know what might be causing the problem because some other company decided that the consumer does not have any need to know that they are running clandestine programs on that person's computer. This is clearly unethical behavior on the part of the software developer, and the fact that microsoft allows software companies to bury their executables in remote parts of the registry makes it obvious that neither gives a crap about the end user; therefore, EULA's are null and void
