"I think anything that causes a problem at the point of install should have been widely publicized by Microsoft...rather than just posted in a knowledge base article and mentioned in the 'Release Candidate' newsgroup for the software," Schoenberg said in an e-mail interview. He also said Microsoft should have taken the added step of e-mailing a warning to people as they were activating and registering the software.

"Finally, it's pretty scary that a bug like this was able to get through their testing," he said.
