Could you please tell me why you are installing McAfee software without my say so and not giving me an opt out?

I do not want this software or any other software installed without my knowledge when i update any piece of software. Adobe obviously has no respect for its users/customers whatsoever.

I wonder if anything can be done about companies like yourselves?

Hope so

Anyone else not happy with this sort of activity?

Regards

Now that you put up that screen i recognize it and always check that box.

Must I have missed it ops if i did. I remember in the past selecting Run or

something like but this time i had to click the file i downloaded. I dont

remember seeing that screen this time but maybe i just clicked straight

through. Will have to pay close attention then. Thanks

sorry uncheck that box, i persume its auto checked for us and we have to

uncheck, which is not good in itself, we end up with software we dont want

Why not just have it so it doesnt auto install and if we WANT it we can

CHECK it, does that not make more sense?

Why dont Adobe do it that way?
