The Adobe PDF reader installer I downloaded from the Adobe site went ahead and installed some Mcafee bloatware software on my PC without asking for permission.

 

This is unacceptable from a company of your cadre, and I insist you remove these mandatory bloatware installations along with your products!

Hi Rahul

 

Hope you are doing well and sorry to hear that.

 

We do have the option to check/uncheck the optional offers getting installed with download of Adobe Acrobat/ Reader DC application as shown in the screenshot below:

Also, would you mind sharing the link you have used to download the application?

I downloaded it from the same link, and was expecting any bloatware request to show up during the installation process.

 

You have added it to the Download page so that customers don't pay attention. Sneaky!
