What's with all the SPAM?

I upgrade from Money Premium 2003 to 2006, and Microsoft rewards me by 
putting spam all over hell. I selected "Turn off sponsorship and advertising 
links", and I still get spam on my screens. M$ should be paying ME for this!

Can anyone recommend a REAL home finance/investment software package that 
has NO SPAM? I'd happily pay any reasonable price.

I stopped watching television and listening to radio because of all the 
damned advertising.

I stopped going to my local grocery store because they have advertising on 
the floor, and advertising waving in the aisles, and talking ads in the deli 
and the checkout lines, plus their dumbass "membership" cards. I drive to 
another store five miles away instead.

I uninstalled Flash from my computer because I hate the zooming, flashing, 
noisy ads it gives me.

The web sites I visit most frequently are the ones to which I have bought a 
subscription that allows me to read them without ads.

I refuse to wear clothing that displays the manufacturer's logo. (I'll 
reconsider, if they offer to pay me.)

I never, ever, EVER buy anything from a company that has spammed me. I do 
get advertising flyers by email, but only from retailers I signed up with 
and can unsubscribe from.

Yet I still can't get away from it! They now have blindingly bright flashing 
signs along the highway! I thought that was illegal. It sure ought to be.

If I go to the beach, they have those goddamned airplanes buzzing back and 
forth, trying to sell me sunscreen! Or tires, or a stupid tv show.

All this, and I know that advertising is extremely expensive. One of these 
days, those morons are going to realize that what they're doing is 
counterproductive. It might not be in my lifetime though.

Actually, they only do it because it's productive. It might not work to get 
you to buy something, but it does work to get more other people to buy 
something.

I'm not arguing that it's good, only that it's financially productive. As 
long as that's true, it will continue or increase.

Assuming that advertising decisions are based on objective information 
(i.e., increase in sales as a result), you must be in the minority. Others 
may FEEL as you do, but they apparently do not ACT as you do.

The question is not whether they reach everyone they'd like to reach. The 
question is whether their advertising investment is retuned + profit on the 
investment. Clearly the advertisers are convinced it is. By a wide margin.

Quicken/Quickbooks is another good program.  When I used their past version, 
it had no ads in it.
