Nowadays, they will "accidentally" FORCE you to install anti-virus (NORTON or whatever in the future) and their DLM or Download Manager.
Whats so bad about that?
- I already have a good FREE AVAST antivirus Home edition! Avast is great!
- I already have an extremely good download manager that can suck those internet juices easily!
Having Adobe DLM? What a joke. I don't need Adobe DLM.
To download Flash Latest Player for Windows directly, Just go here.. http://fpdownload.adobe.com/get/flashplayer/current/install_flash_player.exe
Thats the .exe. Download, click and run.
The second thing, after installing Flash Player will want to know what are you browsing (movies). BLOCK THEM!
In Windows, go to C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc
Theres a file called "hosts" right click > properties, and uncheck "read-only"
Edit the file in notepad..
Your file will look something like this..
# Copyright (c) 1993-1999 Microsoft Corp.
# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
# For example:
# 184.108.40.206 rhino.acme.com # source server
# 220.127.116.11 x.acme.com # x client host
# Start of entries inserted by Spybot - Search & Destroy
..and more.. if any.
Save the file and restart. You won't be able to go to adobe.com anymore ~ so does other sneaky Flash. If you want to be able to go to adobe.com. Just open "hosts" file and edit the line that you've inserted before.
Don't forget to re-enable file's "read-only".
