I don't know for how long this has been going on, but I haven't seen G's toolbar bunlded with anything until today.

I installed a new version of WinDVD and almost at the very end of the installation there was a sneaky screen offering to install G toolbar and the checkbox was ticked by default.

I understand when related software comes bunled with each other, but a software dvd player and a browser toolbar have nothing in common.

Do you know of any other software that bundles G toolbar?

There was a article here [searchenginejournal.com] on them bundling it. Not very long but more info. I really have no problem with it as I'd rather Google over some other unknown 3rd party toolbar.
