I totally agree with MichaeldbSS. I installed the update this morning and got the Google Toolbar and Chrome as unwanted additions. I am a fan of Google, but would like to be given a choice as to whether to install their products or not.
When downloading Flash Player, either through the normal get.adobe.com/flashplayer site or from the upgrade notification dialog, you should always be given the opportunity to opt out of the third party installation. I made a video a little while back that explains how this should work, depending on what version of Flash Player is installed and what update options you have selected.
Thanks Chris for your comments.
I agree that the upgrade process should give us the opportunity to opt out of third party software. What MichaelB and I both wanted to bring to your attention is that for the mowt recent update the process that should work did not. I installed the update on two computers, and on both did not get an opt-out option.
I do not know why it did not give us the opt out option, just that it did not. Perhaps you could check with the update install developers and let us know what went wrong?
It does give you a checkbox to opt out of installing Google Toolbar and Chrome but it is really easy to miss it. It is on the get.adobe.com web page, just above the "Download Now" button. In other words, you have to tell it before you download that you don't want Google Toolbar and Chrome to be installed. Once you have downloaded it, it doesn't ask you. I agree that it is quite annoying.
