A company like HP does not allow implementing spyware applications into their bundled CDs because of the reputation and legal rights. Those programs are usually free with the purchase of a new computer and you can keep or delete them if you do not use them. They do not have an impact on your computer because they are 3rd party applications which run on the operating system and not with the operating system itself. This situation is often encountered to users who bought a new laptop and when they install drivers or system software they also have the possibility to install free software (games, applications, DVD builders, media encoders, audio players, etc).
