it's listed, but unfortunately it's auto-checked so you have to pay attention and opt-out.
afaik, everyone that has no power to change that agrees with you that it should be an opt-in option.
Thanks, When the update showed up on my desktop,it just said download,I didn'e see anything abaout another program along with it, I'll pay closer attention to it next time. Larry
oh, you may be right.
when you go to the flash player web page, Adobe - Install Adobe Flash Player you'll see the mcafee option. but if you allow auto-updates, you may not see that.
i never allow flash player to auto-update for that reason (and because i am a flash developer and use a different flash player version to debug web-based swfs). you have limited (or no) control over what happens when you allow flash player to auto-update.
i hate that and sympathize with the plight you went through. it happened to me once many years ago. i learned to never allow that again.
hopefully, you were able to uninstall mcafee and not have any residual problem-causing detritus left on your system.
Uninstalled it immediately. i will take your advice about no automatic updates.I'll do it online.
Thanks again Larry
