Bing, one more reason to hate Microsoft (just in case you didn't have already several millions)

Tonight I carelessly run a "Windows Update install all" and, much with my dismay, I found it installed Bing Desktop, it messed with my desktop background, with my Firefox settings (gmail opened each mail in a new windows) and god knows what else.

I tried to uninstall Bing Desktop and it said another installation was going on (???) ... so I had to restart, uninstall Bing desktop, restart again.... finally all seems ok.

If Microsoft has to use these VIRAL way of promoting their products, to me it seems like those door-to-door salesmen who put a foot across your door to prevent you from shutting the door on their face.
