    Hi :)


    Just To Let People Know...

    A few days ago I received an update for - Adobe Shockwave 11

    As the update went through the installation..
    There was something - That Had I Not Noticed.. May have caused me big problems :(

    One of the installation windows asking me to click - Next
    Had a notice about also installing - Norton Security Scanner
    The box to install the Norton Scanner was already - Ticked :cautious:

    Already Having - NIS 09
    I have No wish to install - Norton Security Scanner :mad:

    I Have Since Found Out...
    Norton Security Scanner - Is Also Extremely Difficult To Uninstall :rolleyes:
    See Here : http://community.norton.com/norton/board/message?board.id=other&thread.id=7240

    I really don't like it when - Software Installs / Software Updates ...
    Try to install something I didn't ask for or expect.
    They should at least leave the box - Unticked


    I Apologise If I've Posted This In The Wrong Place :oops:

    Hi TechOutsider :)


    Thanks! ;)
    But I think you may have misunderstood me :oops:

    I Didn't Install The - Norton Security Scanner

    Luckily I Spotted It Just In Time ;)

    However!
    I wanted to warn others.
    The update for - Adobe Shockwave 11
    Popped Up .. The very second my laptop was started :eek:
    If everyone gets this update the minute they start up their computers...
    It's very likely to catch quite a few people - Off Guard! :(

    I know you suggested - Revo Uninstaller
    However!
    I'm not sure how well it would work in this instance :doubt:

    Yep, I noticed that too a couple of updates ago with Shockwave. You gotta be on your toes when installing some of these software out there. That's why when ever possible, I choose the custom install option.
