Yep. Same here. I made sure my orginial installation did not install Mc Afee. Now this update tried to quietly sneak in Mc Afee again. I stopped the installer as soon as a noticed.
I've decided to uninstall flash alltogether. Most video sites use HTML5 players now. And let's be honest: flash is primarily used for banners. Not a single mainstream website relies on flash. Ergo: I don't need flash player.
There are THOUSANDS of sites that still use Flash including NetFlix and Facebook. You may not need it, but millions worldwide do, so "more power to you if you" can get by without it.
Well, we'll see where my non-flash experience comes to a halt. I seem to get around the web on my iPad just fine, furthermore the vlc-mediaplayer has a browser plugin that plays flv too. (only fullscreen, but it's do-able). Youtube, Vimeo, Steam and some late night videoservices offer mp4 / html5. I have no experience with facebook and netflix, because i don't use those services.

Welcome to the club. Facebook INSISTED that I provide them (and no doubt, the NSA) with a cellhpone number in order to keep my account. I told them where they could find a cellphone number for me (in hell) and they blocked me by IP address. I've never used NetFlix either because I don't believe in "renting" movies. If I want to pay to see a film once, I'll go to the theater and deal with screaming kids, rude people talking on their cellphones, and sticky floors full of crushed popcorn. On second thought, no... I won't. I'll just buy it, rip it, and watch it over and over with VLC at my leisure.
As I said, "More power to you". I'll still help people here to use their Flash Player, though, and install it without bundled software when they ask.
You obviously didn't read post #1.
And I obviously don't care Mike. Don't make lame excuses for Adobe slipping Mcafee's dirty paws up my skirt. Shoot straight or STFU.
And I obviously don't care
You obviously don't care what you let on your computer, then blame others. Most free softwares these days come with bundled software, and users can always decline them.
Stop attacking other forum users or you will be banned.
Just an FYI, Flash presented itself on my Win 7 system saying I needed an update. I elected to take the update.
It then asked me to download a file, which I did. My browser saved the download link as
I saved the file to disk and it was scanned by Norton and judged to be safe. I then launched the .exe file and it proceeded to install Flash and McAfee.
No option to decline was offered.
I consider that to be unacceptable.
Under normal operating conditions, you should see an opt-out dialog like the one below. While cost-recovery measure are a reality for a product that is tremendously expensive to develop and distribute free of charge, the intent is absolutely to allow you to opt out.
If you want to avoid the download and installation experience for Flash altogether, switch to a browser that includes Flash Player as a built-in component, like Google Chrome or Internet Explorer on Windows 8 and higher.
