The only problem with OptOut is that if you are using a program that depends on Aureate/Radiate, OptOut removes them and breaks the program. That is unfortunately not an option to me.
I will tell you this, though - it is entirely possible that Aureate/Radiate is the cause of my having to reinstall Win2K 5 times in the past month - losing all settings, passwords, installations etc. (but fortunately any data can at least be recovered).
