Default OpenCandy

When you install a freeware product, you might encounter that its installer is powered by OpenCandy, which recommends you to download and install another software product.

To know more about OpenCandy, you might want to check out this article "Controversial Advertising Program Now Being Embedded in More Software".

And here's a quote from the article:

OpenCandy employs some controversial techniques in its operation and this has created some heated discussions in internet forums and blogs. Some say it is adware or spyware while others say it is just another legitimate form of advertising. Whatever, you need to be aware of this product and its potential pitfalls.
