What pisses me off is that they install the program on your computer before you have a chance to agree to these terms

Should you have to agree to the terms BEFORE software is installed on your computer? That seems be the way that all other programs i have ever downloaded or even bought have been. Its like me shooting someone in the face and then saying "By participating in this face shooting you have already agreed to these terms: You do not hold me responsible for damaged face, death...."
Any ways, i didnt get this because i use mozilla (actualy i dont know if it asks you to install software because i have popups off, but these websites stil piss me off) But be carefull what you click on in peoples profiles.
(my friend started this on another forum, im just reposting to get responses)
