I could not opt out of installing McAfee AND Intel programs with last Flash manual update!
This made me very unhappy today and I spent 15 minutes including rebooting my computer to uninstall these programs. A huge inconvenience just to update the Flash player.
Shady tactics. Usually I need to be alert not to accidentally install the unwanted bloatware "offered" with your updates, but this time there was no opt-out option. Flash has WAY too many updates anyway. Chill out Adobe.
Apparently the option to opt out of installing Mcafee is offered in a pop up, so its commonly blocked by most users.
Basically Adobes way of covering their *** "Yea there is an option to install or not install", but hiding it in such a way that they know most users won't ever see it. Shady tactics indeed to get their malware **** installed on peoples machines.
