I though Adobe might have grown out of such silly tricks - see previous threads on this topic going back several years. Obviously not as it's just happened to me in January 2018. Bad move - I might go to another PDF reader now.
That is not completely true. The case is there, but whether you accept it or refuse it, it always downloads the same 1180 KB file and starts installing.
Yep, it took me 20 minutes to remove the McAfee virus from my machine after Adobe surreptitiously installed it. What a crock. ADOBE installs security holes into a system as a condition of accepting software. And McAfee's VIRUS uninstaller won't completely remove it after you remove the two "documented" products installed. I had to go and manually remove files and registry entries afterwards.
This is an optional offer when you download the installer from Adobe. By default it is not selected, though. You have to actively click two check-boxes on the download page to get these add-ons.
It was selected by default for me and that part of the page loaded slower than the rest, meaning I never actually saw it.
this is correct. it now installs with out request and i have reported it as maleware to a few reporting sites I sugest you and everyone else affected by this unwanted intrusion and securty breach as the maleware it is.
Same here. It just installed on my rig unwanted. WTF. I hate Adobe. It's like going Greyhound. It's about the only choice you have and it massively sucks.
