    "Unwanted program (trojan?) piggybacks on installation"

    Summary

    A program called "RelevantKnowledge" installed itself along with the installation of the "Video Cutter and Splitter Indepth" program. The "RelevantKnowledge" program shows up as an icon on the system tray and a window pops up asking if one wants to participate (with millions others) in having one's web activity tracked. Yeah, just what I've been hoping and waiting for, someone to track my activity on the web so I can share and see the combined results of millions of others being tracked. A quick web search indicated other people had problems with the "RelevantKnowledge" program being installed covertly piggybacked on various trialware or shareware problems. CNET should not allow this and it seems to be an error to assure people that this program install spyware free.
