    McAfee Forced Installation

    falkenberg07732

      I just clicked on the 'Update Flash' window and got an updated Flash Player with 'McAfee Security Scan Plus' installed. I was never given an option to opt out of this installation.

       

      Since this software (another virus scanner) can potentially interfere with my existing anit-virus software and such a configuration is not recommended by the installed virus software's creator, I will be reporting this malware install to the FTC via the http://www.ftc.gov/compliant site.

       

      I recommend anyone else who doesn't want McAfee possibly interfering with existing virus software to do the same.
