    How to install Adobe Reader X without installing any McAfee products?

      How can I install Adobe Reader X without installing any McAfee products?  I've just tried twice and saw a McAfee install start before I was ever prompted with an opt-in / opt-out selection.

       

      I think default opt-in on third party software installation is a rather sleezy practice to begin with but this is far worse in my opinion.

       

      If an opt-out option is so well hidden that a user can not easily find it I would always recommend that the user not install that software.  I find it both sad and pathetic that ADOBE has put themself on that list— especially with PDFs being as popular as they are.

       

      This marks the moment that I start to see some legitimacy to Steve Job's perspective of boycotting Adobe.
