How to remove

Question

I was ready to buy TurboTax like I have the last few years and ran across a lot of really upset people on CNET's reviews. Looks like it has activation features and leaves some "spyware" like processes running even after you uninstall it. What do you think about these new "features"? If I run it can I remove the spyware using a program you recommend from webattack?
