Not only that, but Microsoft malware. "Windows Activation Technology plugin"? And sets your search to Bing by default.

So, there goes all my bookmarks, all my history, and all my everything.

Aaaand even after reinstalling firefox, and removing the registry key for this plugin, "Windows Activation Technology" is still sitting there in my FF plugins.
And firefox won't even work right anymore. WTF.

Options -> Check for updates automatically

It blows me away that people just let update windows harass them instead of looking at the damn options.
