Whenever you download and install from the web, you HAVE TO go slow, especially today with all the crap they try to push on you.

Windows 10 Education 64 bit

I can remember my daughter complaining that her netbook was running a lot slower than normal, especially the internet. I'd open IE and 2/3 of the screen would be toolbars. I'd ask her if she actually used any of them and get a no, what are they and why are there so many. Then after I explained how they got there I'd get that . For her it was a I have to have that super duper program all my friends use. Ah there it is, click, click, click, you get the picture. That's what they are counting on and why its enabled by default. They'll snag a few more that are just in a hurry or not paying close enough attention. I can't see them ever changing that tactic unless forced to by legislation.

Don't forget that "non-PC literate" users may believe that the additional "crap" is actually required to use the program.

Jimbo, you need to be careful about what you download and install - read the fine print carefully before proceeding.
