Thanks for the feedback. Providing Flash Player free of charge is a tremendously expensive undertaking, and the bundled offers are an important cost-recovery mechanism. That said, under normal circumstances, you should have seen an option to opt out of the bundled offer.
I've included a screenshot of the expected UI below. We've heard from some users that running third-party plug-ins like Ghostery interfere with the correct execution of the software on the page, which results in the UI for this middle column not being displayed.
If you're not using something like Ghostery or AdBlock Pro, and you were not presented with this dialog, I'd be more than happy to investigate the issue further and try to get it resolved. If you could give me some basic details as described in the following article, that would be very helpful in attempting to recreate the problem: Read Before Posting: How To Get A Useful Answer To Your Question
I've just posted some of this elsewhere. I do want to get my experience in front of someone at Adobe.
Flash presented itself on my Win 7 system saying I needed an update. I elected to take the update.

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.
Through this process, I wasn't interacting directly with my default web browser of Firefox, I only saw Firefox as being involved at the end of the install, showing me some other Adobe product. I can imagine that the Adobe install used my browser to do the download but I didn't see that in action.
