Microsoft and Spyware & Malware?

I was in the process of installing the Microsoft Office Live add-in this weekend and thought that I would read the EULA to see what "crap" Microsoft expected me to agree to, so far I have found a comical section about "removing spyware or adware may hinder your service"

Remeber if you install the "Office Live Add-in" you have already agreed to these EULA terms....

If you remove or disable "spyware," "adware" and other potentially unwanted software ("potentially unwanted software"), it may cause other software on your computer to stop working, and it may cause you to breach a license to use other software on your computer (such as where the other software installed the potentially unwanted software on your computer as a condition of your use of the other software). By using features of the service intended to help you remove or disable potentially unwanted software, it is possible that you will also remove or disable software that is not potentially unwanted software. If a feature of the service prompts you before removing or disabling potentially unwanted software, you are solely responsible for selecting which potentially unwanted software the service removes or disables. Before authorizing the removal of any potentially unwanted software, you should read the license agreements for the potentially unwanted software.

Then there is the but about lawful use of the service....

1. use any unauthorized third party software or service to access the Microsoft instant messaging network (currently known as the .NET Messenger Service);
2. use any automated process or service to access and/or use the service (such as a BOT, a spider, periodic caching of information stored by Microsoft, or "meta-searching");
3. use any unauthorized means to modify or reroute, or attempt to modify or reroute, the service;
4. damage, disable, overburden, or impair the service (or the network(s) connected to the service) or interfere with anyone's use and enjoyment of the service
