Grrr.

Some random bit of Oracle background crap keeps crashing on my PC, bringing up a window, which until this morning sat safely in the background and could be safely ignored (the Oracle forums etc. have been as helpful as these things always are).
Now, probably as a result of having to apply a hot-fix in order to install Windows Installer 4.5, or as a result of having installed Windows Installer 4.5 (ironically, in order to install SQL Server 2008), as well as getting the ignorable message box, I get a non-ignorable appearing in front of everything else 'do you want to send this information to Microsoft' dialog box.
Time to disable Oracle...
Grrr.
