To whom it may concern:
Please stop bundling McAfee security software with the Adobe Flash updater. A family member said that Flash wanted to update, so I ran the downloaded installer and saw that a McAfee program wanted to download and install alongside Flash.
I know there is the option on the web page when updating Flash to not include the McAfee software as part of the update, but when I told my family member this I was told there wasn't one, just a Download button and nothing else. So I was the one who looked stupid.
I know that McAfee is a legitimate software company, but too many times now I have had to repair this family member's computer because of unwanted software sneaking in due to unchecked option boxes or fine print not being read. I suspect that one such time effectively lobotimized our existing security setup and let a particularly nasty virus in. (That, and a display driver that Dell should've pushed out automatically compounded the problem by not allowing the security software to reinstall but that's beside the point.)
When your distribution deal ends with McAfee, please do not renew it. Some of Adobe's customers already have their own security setup and do not want anything that could interfere with it.
Thank you for your time,
