McAfee-Install via Adobe-Reader-Update

Anonymous 6 years ago updated by Unchecky 5 years ago 1
Hi,


Is it possible to prevent McAfee from installing, via Adobe-Reader-Update ?


One gaming-mate came up with it:

Mine actually didn't go through the website..as it was a popup telling me to update.


I found that the updater installs a program called TiltWheelMouse.exe onto your system and inserts a pointer in the Startup section of Msconfig. When you next reboot/start your system, it then starts the program to download & install McAfee in the background without any prompts.

It also places a pointer in your registry file under the pximouse entry under the Run folder. I merely looked for those files (pximouse and TiltWheelMouse.exe) and deleted the entries in the registry. And deleted the file TiltWheelMouse.exe from the System32 folder
