If it is sponsered by someone else, I expect a discount on the hardware. If the ads are there without the discount nor consent, it'd be stealing my processor-time and electricity for a service I did not want; and worse, if it is done like the ads in a webbrowser, it is an attack-vector for hackers. As such, the driver could be classified as malware, both stealing from you and compromising it.

The easy solution is to update your hostsfile. The better solution is to mail the company. For such cases, I always add a CC to "everyone@company.com", which surprisingly often works Thumbs Up | :thumbsup:
