I guess their “standards” don’t include the installer installing SearchSettings.exe from the wunderkinds at Spigot.  Once on your system, this little gem will (at a bare minimum) continuously change your default search provider to Yahoo.  Given Yahoo’s current financial woes it doesn’t come as a huge surprise, but still, I wouldn’t have thought they stoop so low as to launch flat-out hijacking attacks on user’s desktops.  

That’s the last app I will ever download from and the last hit yahoo will ever see from me.
