    Is Adobe Reader now a Trojan for installing unwanted software?

    Junk Science Level 1

      Adobe Reader update message popped up today.  Started install of update and noticed that some McAfee Scan garbage was also being installed.  Nothing in the update invitation mentioned that I would be installing anything other than a Reader update.  I cancelled at about 67% of the process.  Reader install then finished and McAfee showed to be cancelled.  What damage was done by allowing this to go as far as I did?  I'm not happy with this attempt to hose my computer with unwanted stuff!  Where did I miss the option to decline the McAfee junk BEFORE the install was already underway?

      Looks like Adobe Reader is now a Trojan for unwanted McAfee Install.  Now I can't even trust Adobe to not infect my computer.
