Is Microsoft installing spyware?

With all of the spyware around these days, do we have to worry about Microsoft?

Did you know Microsoft "Windows Genuine Advantage Notifications" tool, is calling home and connect to Microsoft servers every time you boot (pilot version), or every two weeks (current release). I would like to know WHY? What information about you and your computer does Microsoft NEED every two weeks?

USSROVER gave me this web site, I though everyone should be told about this tool to remove the WGA.
RemoveWGA enables you to remove the Microsoft "Windows Genuine Advantage Notifications"

This computer is waiting for a reboot so it can complete the removal of the WGA.
I'm back and here is a screen shot of the window I got on reboot!
FYI it took longer than normal to reboot don't worry it will come back up.
