Windows 7 Home Premium
Flash player 18.104.22.168
Chrome: 25.0.1364.152 m
Flash updater asked if I wanted to install update. I said yes. It installed Flash + McAfee. I do not want McAfee. I have Norton. I uninstalled McAfee. Every time I close Chrome and reopen it, Flash automatically downloads and wants to install. I have to go to my downloads folder on C drive and delete it. It has done that 22 times. I tried the solution I found on your site where you run a batch file. It did nothing to help. Rebooted. Flash still downloads. I think this is a bug because I have used Flash for as long as it existed and never had this problem before. It is driving me crazy and I want it to stop. What do I have to do to get rid of this incessant downloading?
I did go to Control Panel a few minutes ago and told Flash Player to NEVER download. Made no difference. Closed Chrome, reopened and here came Flash., downloading once again.
By the way, I used to be able to say no I do not want McAfee but now I can't do that - it automatically installs itself like a piece of malware. I know it isn't malware but it reminds me of that. Driveby installs. Will you please make that optional again?
You can check the Flash Player Plug-ins installed in Google Chrome by typing “chrome://plugins/” in the address bar.
Google Chrome has Flash Player already installed in it called as PepperFlash. The location is:“C:\Users\bgupta\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\25.0.1364.152\PepperFlash\pepflash player.dll”
Check if you have both of them enabled. If so, you can disable one installed along with Google Chrome.
Go to the link below. You will have an option to Uncheck McAfee installation.
Click on Download Now and install Flash Player using the downloaded file.
