Adobe Flash player now demands installation of McAfee Security Scan, is there an alternative to Adobe Flash player?

Posted

I do not want ant McAfee products installed on my system but now it seems that Adobe Flash player goes hand in hand with McAfee Security Scan, you can't have one without the other. What on earth are Adobe up to and are there any other options? Thank you.
