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 ass "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 shit installed on peoples machines.
