Apple’s questionable programming

October 12th, 2008 tj 2 comments

Yet again, the installation process for iTunes throws up some more Apple nonsense.  Not content with not supporting x64 versions of Windows for ages, not content with the usual trick of forcing useless, ugly (Safari) bloated (Quicktime) crap onto people and installing random processes and services with no custom install option to get rid of them, this time the installer actually forced my anti-virus program to shut itself down.  No warnings, no prompts, nothing.  Just a window up from Avast! saying ‘something is trying to shut me down.  Do you want me to obey?’  Talk about dodgy.  And lazy.
