A long time ago, I thought installing InstallShield update manager would be a good idea. For a variety of reasons, it wasn't. I couldn't find a way to uninstall it, though. No start menu entry, no Add/Remove Programs entry, no way to do it from the application itself. In the past, I'd look for a way quickly, not find one, and then forget about it.

Today, I did a little google search on uninstalling the retarded beast. And guess what? Howto: Uninstall update manager. You need to download a freaking uninstaller that's 2.4 MBs.

Wow.

Way to go for a company whose business is the mechanics of user-friendly application installation and uninstallation.

Smacktards.

haha... sounds almost like the spyware that you have to visit a website for and trust it enough to download more software just to get rid of the rubbish you never wanted in the first place [rolleyes]

I'd imagine it's more a dirty marketting ploy than something the engineers thought up [smile]
