Snooping: During the install, Microsoft Windows will snoop your
hard drive for the existance of competitors' software. It looks for about
100 applications by other developers for which Microsoft has a similar
product. This information is transmitted to Microsoft electronically during
Online Registration for purposes unknown. A more detailed explanation of
the program's activities is detailed in "
the Windows 95 Registration Wizard".
To be the safest, disconnect your computer from the network completely (pull the ethernet/modem cable right out of the computer) before this setup. Tell Windows you'll fill out the snail-mail registration form (I don't recommend that either; you'll get junkmail from Micro$oft), and continue. When setup is finished and windows loads, find the file named reginfo.txt and delete it (read thru it first, if you like). This file contains some registration info that would be transmitted to Microsoft during the registration.
