    Forced install of McAfee

    PTAT

      What happed to the option to opt out of installing McAfee?

       

      There used to be a way to disable the McAfee from automatically installing with Adobe Flash & Reader. I just installed flash, and McAfee Security Scan Plus was forcefully installed. I retraced my steps to make sure I didn't miss the disable option and there was none.

       

      Tricking people into installing programs they don't want was bad form back when RealNetworks used to play that trick. I've always been bothererd that Adobe stoops that low, but to force the install without asking is just unexcusable.
