Quicken Deluxe 2010 spams your desktop


I just bought and installed Intuit Quicken Deluxe 2010 from their site for $59. The first thing to disappoint me was the fact that there was nowhere during the purchasing procedure to enter my coupon code and get a discount. I was in too much of a hurry to bother with hunting around for how to do this so they got to keep my $10 discount.

The second thing that really annoyed me was that the installation procedure dumped three spam links on my desktop for other products that they sell.

I haven't even run their software yet and they've had two strikes that annoyed me sufficiently to blog negatively about them. It might be great software but so far it looks like a shady company using back-alley tactics.

Edit on 11/30/2009: That link above (Intuit Quicken Deluxe 2010) has the software priced at $54.99 so you save a through dollars through NewEgg. I didn't know about it at the time so paid the full $59 to Intuit.
