Suspicious Printer Software

I began to install the software on my new Canon MP970. Screens and prompts for Arcsoft appeared on the screen, which weren't contained in the large Quick Start Guide, and that put me on my guard from the outset. Arcsoft is photo editing software. I was concerned by the language in Arcsoft's user agreement that it prompted me to accept that said that Arcsoft could access my computer for information. I find that unsettling and didn't sign the user agreement. I'll probably use different photo-editing software anyway.

I am concerned that I would be uploading software that would ascertain my computer viewing or buying habits in order to sell me more merchandise. I don't want to receive spam or junk mail or be placed on any lists.

Does anyone else have similar concerns about uploading the software that comes packaged with some of these products?

Jay
