    MacCleaner and other pesky add-ins upon installation of Flash?

    antoniop23556382

      My current Flash updates have been deviled by automatic installation of MacCleaner and other pernicious add-ins that take over my browser and constantly ask whether I want to clean my system, etc.

       

      Full disclosure: I worked for Adobe for eight years and even did some Flash documentation. I just grew to trust the installer and went with everything they suggested.

       

      This time around, I was savvy to the problem and declined MacCleaner and so on. Yet, at the end of installation, I saw a screen (the Yes button obviously worked; the No button was unresponsive) asking me to play some game or another. The only way out was to close the browser.

       

      I'm running OS X 10.10.1 on a Mac Book Air. My version of Flash is 23.0.0.205. My browser version is Safari 8.02.

       

      Is this some kind of hack, or has Adobe really resorted to this? I can't believe that's so. Anyone else have this problem?
