Answers / Installation & updates
How can I prevent Adobe from installing McAfee with every update. Every time I have to update, I end up getting an install which I do not want. So far as I can see, there is no box which asks, specifically, whether I want this worthless program.How can I be sure to prevent this. It's a pain to have to uninstall with each update. This issue is one which, were it not necessary to have adobe for so many files I want access to, would cause me to boycott Adobe Acrobat. Eventually, I will probably end up doing so anyway, unless this is fixed.

It sounds like when you downloaded Reader the checkbox was on to install McAfee, which is why this is happening. The McAfee website says that there are two ways to remove McAfee Security Scan Plus:
You can also uninstall through the McAfee Security Scan Plus folder:
If this keeps happening to you, I would uninstalled Reader and then download and reinstall it from here:
http://get.adobe.com/reader/enterprise/ - this does not use the download manager, nor contain any bundled software.
