    WTF!!!! Flash Player Upgrade Installs McAfee Without Asking Permission!!!!

    cbudin

      When I booted my Windows 7 PC I got the usual message saying that the Adobe Flash Player needed to be upgraded. But when I downloaded and ran the upgrade software, it also installed McAfee Security software on my PC without even asking my permission! What's up with that? Since when is it Adobe policy to install 3rd party software without permission during a routine upgrade?

       

      It just so happens that I use a FOSS security suite that I am perfectly happy with and I don't need Adobe's help in keeping my computer safe.

       

      Anyway I hope this is an oversight and will be corrected soon.
