Thanks for the quick reply. I rechecked the download web page and it has a completely different center panel than your page. There is no mention of offers that can be declined.
I have seen other apps that offer the option to decline these secondary apps as a step during the installation process. Adobe needs to revise its installation procedures to include a panel with check boxes that a user can uncheck before anything is installed. The current method of depending on a certain web page to display before the kit is downloaded is undependable, as the screen shot below shows. It is also frustrating since the user is unaware of the unexpected apps and must know how to uninstall them after the main application has finished the installation. Lastly, this practice leaves one with a negative impression of Adobe's business practices.
Hi Michael315 ,
Thanks for the screenshot. Can you please private message me the URL to that page? It's missing from the screenshot.

Thank you. I received your message and have escalated this to the team that handles the online installer page.
