Foxit Reader installs Mobilegeni SPAMWARE

Today I installed Foxit Reader based on the recommendations of a lot of friend. A screenshot is attached below.
Soon after installation i noticed an Android shop called Mobilegeni also installed. I surprisingly do not remember seeing any options to not install it. First thing i did, was to go ahead and uninstall it! It just too ages to uninstall and inspite of the last one hour, is still says it is being uninstalled. I then checked msconfig and realized that Mobilegeni was also linked to the windows startup, so went ahead and unchecked it.
The scary part is that, after the Malwarebytes is no longer working.. Now restarting the system (before that posting this). Lets see what happens. Overall, Foxit guys, VERY BAD!!! Don't recommend!
