I'm curious. Why do you have to use your ISPs software? I use Earthlink
and they have their own software. I don't use it but it is not a
paranoia issue but rather a convenience issue on my side. Their software
offers some advantages in taking a system on the road and the like. I
just don't use internet much on the road. I think your ISP is accessable
without their software. You need to learn more before you make blanket
accusations the way you do.
