Unhappy This Sucks!!!!!!!!!

i came home from work to find my 10yr old son whos a mad WWE (wrestling) fan using this browser download
http://download.com.com/3000-2356-10204137.html
he was well chuffed with it so i looked into it and you also have to install a search engine called UCMORE so i ran ad-aware and there was 3 reg keys 3files and one folder from UCMORE
so iwent to add remove uninstalled it and yeah you guessed it the browser wouldnt run so ive now removed it and im now officially the worst dad in the world!!!!
What really pees me off is theres nothing in the description warning you of the bloody spyware how can these ppl get away with it!

well, they do mention the spyware, it's just in the EULA that nobody ever reads, let alone a 10 year old.
