Et tu, Adobe? *Updated*

Scumbags … I hate software that installs other software with minimal warning. And during the *update* process no less.

Adobe reader asked to update itself, I gave it permission, and a while later McAfee pops up and says that it was installed as part of my recent download (I was just fricken updating!) … and asked permission to continue scanning my PC.

So I said no and instantly uninstalled it.

I use Microsoft Security Essentials, which has worked so far to keep viruses and malware at bay.

Unfortunately, it does not yet detect sleaze-ware Sad smile

Update: My friend Sue sent me to the Abstruse Goose web site where this little cartoon was waiting … it is definitely on point here.
