ABC Scrabble

September 11, 2006

This application report reviews the ABC Scrabble application, produced by 2M Games.

We find that ABC Scrabble from is badware because it installs additional applications -- including spyware and badware components -- without telling the user; it attempts to install additional software well after the initial installation; it adds programs to the user's startup folder without disclosure; and it fails to uninstall bundled software when the main program is uninstalled.

We currently recommend that users do not install the version of ABC Scrabble that we tested, unless the user is comfortable with the level of risk we identify or until the application is updated consistent with the recommendations in this report.
