Ass-k is becoming an unethical spyware operation (if it ever wasn't) which installs anyway even if you opt out, then has no uninstaller, only "Modify" or "Repair" which doesn't let you modify to not run their crap.

Back up the Reg files before cleaning them so if there is an issue you can "merge" them back in.
