    Forgive me, but I`m not seeing the humor and/or interest in this post. So Ask.com has a toolbar now. So what? Every major search engine does nowadays.

    the "I accept license agreement" only applies to the toolbar.

    It does piss me off though, because it`s checked by default. :/

    Anyone trying to install any recent software, has this barrier to surpass. It automatically highlights that you want the Ask.com searchbar and you agree to install it. So, if you weren`t paying any attention, and pushed the yes button, which happens frequently on all the popups that incur while downloading, you get a brand new search bar, at the cost of your oversight and your deadened soul.

    The question is: can you continue if you uncheck `I accept the license agreement and want to install the toolbar` if yes then there is no problem aka not a good/funny post here on IAB
    Then again, if it is no... You can uninstall the toolbar after finishing right?! Aka not a good/funny post here on IAB

    Besides, the people here on IAB will never ever fall into this trap cause since when do the people here miss anything?!!

    The problem is that you cannot continue, as you can`t accept the licensing agreement without accepting the toolbar as they share the same tick box. That is not normal as most of the time the licensing agreement and toolbar/homepage has separate ways of accepting.
    It`s ironic that people are saying that others only fall for this because they skim stuff and don`t pay attention.

    If you don`t want to install it, simply click Cancel. Ask.com is the sole application requesting agreement to install. It`s not like Java install that asks you if you`d like to ALSO install Google Toolbar and Desktop.

    What`s the point of this anyway? I must be missing something.

    Aaaand.. Point missed entirely. It does install with something else. And it`s checked yes by default, so if you don`t pay attention and uncheck it, well, yeah. Have fun with the toolbar.

    Lots of those downloads do the same thing. That`s why I read before installing anything. I remember reading something recently about how Apple was screwing everyone over by making a Safari download automatically checked in a iTunes update. I saw it and unchecked it. I don`t know what the big deal is.

    These days, with the new laws passed regarding licensing and endorsements, it`s entirely legal for s/w manufacturers to imbed advertisements (adware) in Freeware s/w packages b/c We Want Everything For Nothing. This RC5 s/w (titlebar) has a description about Ask.com that Microsoft endorses the software and you do need to slow down and read before actioning the installation process because Ask.com tools are defaulted to be installed. There is nothing wrong here. The s/w manufacturer may have received tons of support (and endorsements) from MS to build their s/w package and in part agreed to offer Ask.com tools to anyone that purchases the RC5 product.

    I do hate advertisements as most-do...but many products are cheaper and free b/c of these endorsements.

    That said, it`s time to "take time" installing Free or Cheap s/w products and realize that crapware may be involved with the install.

    It`s interesting/funny because it looks like it doesn`t give you a choice, but it does. you can uncheck both boxes and still install the software you`re trying to without the toolbar. The agreement only applies to the toolbar.
    To those with this knowledge, this post doesn`t seem as funny/interesting as it would to those without.

    Checking the box accepts the licence agreement of Ask.com, not TVersity; that`ll come later (or previously, or not at all) in the installer.

    That`s obvious though.

    I don`t really get it either, but I`m assuming the strong-arm tactic is that you have this Ask Internet Toolbar installer in the installer for another program that has nothing whatsoever to do with web browsing, thanks to a sweetheart deal between the two companies.

    Oh noez, if you unclick both boxes it still installs the original (non toolbar) program. If you don`t believe me try it, the program installed above can be found here:

    "Set Ask.com as my default search engine" - Self explanatory
    "I accept the license agreement and want to install the Ask.com toolbar" - You accept the terms of the Ask.com toolbar and install it.

    The biggest clue is the wording of the license agreement, "Click for Ask.com end user license agreement" Ask.com, not TVersity.

    ... uncheck both boxes? the license agreement referred is for the ask.com toolbar, as evidenced by the fact that just below that box is a link to the ask.com license agreements. point of reference: nobody ever makes you accept a license agreement without providing it for you to read first.

    Also, my gripe for this is that Firefox was initially better BECAUSE there were no toolbars. But I guess they forgot that people liked that feature and sold out....within 2 years...

    "I`ve never liked the `Tag-along` programs stuffed inside web downloads, They are annoying. It`s really annoying when you have to fix people`s computers that don`t know what they are doing and install dozens of these toolbars and ad programs."

    What blows my mind is that those type of things - as well as SPAM like we see here sometimes -actually make money!

    Checking the "accept terms" box also means you agree to install the toolbar. It`s literally impossible to continue without it.

    Dumb, but that`s what it is.

    You can uncheck accept terms for service and the program still installs just fine. I had to go through this the other day.

    I am extremely tired with people whining about how much a program sucks because it has yahoo toolbar or some other crap in it. HOW DO YOU THINK THAT PROGRAM IS PAID FOR? Seriously. just un-check the boxes and quit whining and posting crap like this. 1 star thank you very much.

    The programme is for the installation of the toolbar.

    The agreement`s for the toolbar. You don`t have to tick that box, since you`re not agreeing to it. You can continue without it.

    Now, I could understand it if they had the "accept" one un-clicked, and the "next" button was grayed out, but as is... This is just pretty stupid.

    Now, it IS a major pain in the ass when you download some new app or something for your web-browser and it sets your f*cking homepage to ask.com every god forsaken time you update or whatever.

    I got pissed with a LOT of apps because of that sh*t. Finally switched to google chrome. I`m content, and there`s none of that Ask.com toolbar BS, for obvious reasons.

    The meaning of this is that you HAVE to install the toolbar if you`re gonna accept the license agreement, which is the only way to download the thing you`re downloading.

    "The agreement`s for the toolbar. You don`t have to tick that box, since you`re not agreeing to it. You can continue without it."

    This. That`s absolutely right, the wording is VERY misleading and really does con you in to thinking it`s necessary to install the toolbar but you can uncheck both boxes and still continue installing without the ask.com crap...

    I didn`t laugh... I don`t get it? It`s asking to agree to install the Ask Toolbar. So frakking uncheck the two boxes and click Next. That`s not the agreement to install TVersity :/

    So a true nerd would not laugh because they would get exactly what it is and just want to know why the hell someone thought it was funny.

    More like someone who is slightly nerdy, but doesn`t know too much about it program installation, would laugh. "Haha, they`re making you install it! Get it! Hahahaha!"

    A non-nerd (is that a word?) would just stare at it waiting for the scary Exorcist girl to pop up. For those people, here you go:

    I`ve had several programs that won`t install unless you install the damn ask toolbar. And even if you uninstall it later, the original stops working properly. Too many programs add on useless stuff and make it near impossible to get *just* what you want without extra crap...
