Extensions Pack upgrade requires way too many clicks

Every time you upgrade VirtualBox, you have to upgrade the Extension Pack. This requires far too many clicks, including the insulting-to-everyone's-intelligence requirement to scroll to the bottom of the disclaimers mumbo jumbo before hitting Accept. (Seriously, what utility does that scroll requirement have? Making me scroll through crap doesn't make me read it.)

All this upgrade really needs, besides Windows UAC, is a single click that affirms acceptance of 1. terms and disclaimers and 2. the user's willingness to install.

Seriously, who doesn't install the Extension Pack? Makes it as easy and painless as possible.

BTW, I am assuming there is some legal or technical requirement that prevents this from being bundled with VirutalBox. If not, I'd much rather it just be bundled and dispense with the Extension Pack upgrade entirely.

Exactly. There is a legal reason for this click sequence and we cannot change this. Sorry.
