Adobe FlashPlayer You're On My Shitlist

Flash always wants to update. At least there's an option to ask first, though the window blocks everything until you clear it. Friday LARA got like version 16.0 for Win XP SP3. Just now SUMMER wanted to install 15.9-something on Win XP SP2.

It offers some McAffee piece-o-crap as per usual and I as per usual uncheck the box. Download the installer. Run it. It starts downloading Flash AND the McAffee piece-o-crap. Fine, I'll delete it later. THEN it started trying to install Chrome giving a message that Chrome is already installed. THEN it started downloading Adobe Lightbox! On Friday that was a separate offer.


I killed the download. Started over. Same thing.

I gave Adobe some feedback and copied it so I could paste it here, but alas I lost it.

Suffice it to say, Adobe... either get your programmers to do the job right OR don't do it at all.

I don't need to have my time wasted because you screwed up. How many times do I have to say it? I BUY COMPUTERS TO GET MY WORK DONE - NOT YOURS. Period. End of story.

The shitlist is rapidly growing this month. Has everybody lost their minds?
