Default Small suggestion regarding Installation process

I moved away from ICQ because of the annoying ads, popups etc.
Now while registering QIP, I almost didn't notice, you try to lure people into
"Use www.qip.ru as your startpage"
"Use qip-search-something as your default search engine"

I was pleased to see that the boxes for "Create Desktop Icon" and "Create Quick Launch Icon" are not ticked as default.

But this is exactly that kinda stuff why I uninstalled ICQ. Do I want the QIP as my startpage? Hell no, what were you thinking. Do I want to use some weird search engine? Hell no, I'll stick to google. And that's what 99% of the people out there think and you know it. So don't try to lure them into having to change it back afterwards, it ruins the otherwise perfect ICQ-style-free image of QIP.

do you want to pay for qip? don`t think so. do you want to see adds in qip? don`t think so. do you want to see qip project closed? don`t think so.

It`s easy -- to keep qip project running -- we need money, but we don`t want to have adds in our software, we don`t want to ask money for our software.. so only way are partner projects. So -- if you left checkboxes -- thank you very much -- you helped the project. If no -- then we`re just happy, that you do like our product.

actually you'd be surprised but the fact that by default qip sets his own homepage (and a lot of ****** newbs click through the instalation process without reading anything) is the reason why they don't want qip in first place

because it "RUINED THEIR HOMEPAGE!!11ONE"

2 of my friends already stopped using qip before i told them that they can choose not to install it..

Ruining the homepages is the problem of those

absolutely right. Tell them to be more attentive while installing.

So. Either qip with this checkboxes, or no qip at all. That's just how things are atm. We're not happy too.

Aren't there any other ways to keep the project running?

Just I can't think of other alternatives that ViolentOr didn't mention, but may be you'll suggest your variant?
