I use Maxthon and it doesn't detect the McAfee checkbox when Adobe Flashplayer updates.

Currently, Unchecky is not able to handle checkboxes which appear on websites. Only native installers are supported.

I found an old thread with this topic after I posted.  Too bad the check box is on their server, not in the installer.  McAfee's sales pitch is annoying.

Would it be possible to release browser extensions (at least for extendable browsers, like Chrome and Firefox) that could work in tandem with Unchecky? Hell, it could even extend functionality to uncheck boxes on sites which sign you up for newsletters, or that automatically agree to share your data with third parties.
We do plan to add support for browsers, either with browser extensions, or by using other methods.
