The installer has advertisements for optional softwares using Installmonetizer's (www.installmonetizer.com ) software.
Some people may find this annoying, and/or a security/privacy risk (Like me).

Additionally, at uninstall it opens www.babylon.com , another annoying (and rather suspicious) thing.

See this post on their forum.

If you want to use this piece of software, choose the portable version.
