Not to excuse any of this...
There is a way, far too obscure but it's there, to shut off "suggested"

want to see anymore (like Safari) and go Tools-Ignore Selected Updates.
Sun pushes the MSN Toolbar now, not the Yahoo toolbar. (Shouldn't that
be the Bing Toolbar by now?)

Or the latest Microsoft .NET update which installs an un-installable
Firefox extension so that .NET can hose your other browser too...
Or Sun insisting that I get my Yahoo Toolbar with my Java update...
Or Adobe insisting I get (whatever-the-hell-it-was) with the Flash and
Fun and Misc security discussion for OT posts.
