I like adobe products. What I don't like is the continual push on installations to install other products (i.e. security) when installing something as simple as a flash update.
It becomes a bit tiring after a while to continually having to carefully survey every install/update to make sure that something I don't want is by default added to my system.
How about making everything optional that is not directly related to what I am installing or upgrading.
Eventually I will just stop using the adobe products and will find some other company that does not do this. I hope all the companies marketing departments
are listening to this. I am sure that I am only the tip of the iceburg of people who are tired of this deceptive practice and will move somewhere else where this is not done.
There are "standalone" installers that don't have the "bundled junk"
Adobe doesn't push them because they offest costs by having McAfee/Norton/Google pay them for each download that IS bundled. And complain as you (and everyone else) might, the practice ISN'T going to change.
