Daunting Installers

wlinstI read the news about the latest Windows Live Suite from Microsoft today.  I hadn’t tried the “Family Safety OneCare” product, so I thought I’d give it a shot.

Then I clicked on the installer. (Click to enlarge)

Then I said, “ugh.”

I really just wanted to try OneCare.  But the installer offers up 9 different checkboxes of “stuff” for me to download.  This wouldn’t be a problem except the 8 of them are checked – requiring me to uncheck them.  And, in the world’s most ironic part, the Windows Live OneCare product is the *only* one of the bunch which isn’t checked.

Am I too sensitive to unchecking boxes?
