Even major anti-virus vendors are bundling them so its not uncommon to find these programs on your computer after installation.

Depends on how it's bundled. In some cases, you will be advised before installation (by reading a EULA)...other times during installation where you will be given options to install or not install. We are seeing more cases where installation is selected for you by default unless you uncheck the box not to install. Then there are vendors who will attempt to hide that information so it's installed without your knowledge.
do I see that in that program what I have downloaded, there's a toolbar what I do not like, than I cancel that.

If you choose to opt out of installing a toolbar and the setup process does not allow you to keep that choice, then I would not use the software.

There is no right or wrong answer as it depends. If the primary software vendor that bundles the toolbar is trusted and reputable, then most likely you will clearly see your choices and options during the setup process. If you go through the process too quickly, there's always a change you can miss that so its best to go slowly and READ everything. If not, and you install a toolbar by mistake it usually can be removed easily via Add/Remove or Programs and Features.
is my thought right, is it better that when you get a program with Toolbar, that you cancel immediately the setup procedure.?
