Spyware Conduit in installation process included!

Hi!
I truly love this great piece of software.
Due to a new Windows installation I had to reinstall sweethome3d.
In the istallation process there was this tiny check box that I don't accept installing "Conduit". I had this terrible software once on my PC and it was insanely hard to get fully rid of it.
I don't think this is the right way to monetize this software.
cheers,

As a developer, I try to earn my life from the very long time I spent on programming Sweet Home 3D.
The offer made by OpenCandy is perfectly visible and users have to accept it or refuse it before finishing the installation. If it's not your case, it's a bug and please report it, so I can forward it to OpenCandy.
