Could the BOINC project talk with various computer manufacturers and try to get them to install the software (along with a fitting project for the computer's capabilities) on all the new machines they make? They could make it a selling point.

I doubt that would get anywhere as 99.99% of all the "crap ware" that comes pre-loaded on a Windows PC is NEVER looked at or used by the consumer and the crap ware companies PAY the manufacturer to pre-load it on there.
