Install Ask toolbar - are you kidding Oracle?

Every time my Windows computer upgrades Java - which is getting rather frequent and reducing my faith in that virtual machine as being safe - they try to push the Ask toolbar on me.

Now that we know that Twitter, Facebook and Apple have all been hacked through the vector of Java I think it's time to let this thing go. Having the updater attempt to install malware each time (and often tricking even me into it) just diminishes the Oracle brand. Stop it.
