    Adobe flashplayer and McAfee security, why?

    voyagervc

      I have been using adobe products both professionally and at home for some time now. Last time I updated adobe flash player it gave me the option of not loading mcafee security and I therefore didn't load it as it causes serious conflicts with much of the software that I have. This time, without warning, mcafee security has been loaded and I am now stuck with trying to solve many conflicts. I therefore have 3 questions:

       

      1/ Why does adobe insist on bundling software, that people don't want want, with their software without telling them?

       

      2/ Does adobe look at the web forums, other than it's own, prior to bundling software with their products to see what reactions people have towards the bundled software?

       

      3/ Has adobe got a contract with mcafee to get their product bundled as many people may be moving away from mcafee due to security issues?

       

      I used to use mcafee for my virus protection (newly updated) until I had some software deleted by AVG (which at the time was over 20 days old) due to a malicious trogen virus embeded in the software. From that point on I have not trusted mcafee.

       

      If possible I would like these questions answered, as would many others worldwide.
