I use it all the time and had a tinfoil moment do they harvest info on what is being spell checked and where?
I would assume they would for marketing purposes and such

It installs a key logger.
The only way to remove it, is to wipe your drive.
Sorry, you've just been cataloged.

I hear David Koresh was spell-checking 'Destroy the armies of Babylon' via Google Toolbar, and that is how the ATF found him.
