Good idea Doug. What really burns my ass is that in this day and age we
are still being forced to use this silly bullshit for programs like
"flash" and others. I know that this will piss off some people;
however, when someone asks, "Why do you use Microsoft instead of
open-source software", you can point to crap like this being an
excellent reason. IMHO, the only reason for crap like this is because
it is easier to ignore the problem than fix it.
