Not quite, on their official web site, one has the option to UNclick install McAfee just before one clicks to install Flash. I've been unclicking such things for several years now.
Well that's very odd, because when I updated Flash on my 7 PC only a day before the XP update, I didn't get the McAffee install, nor did I check/uncheck any options on their website. Maybe they just auto-checked yes because XP is no longer supported by MS and they think we need it by default?

That's sounds about right,
If not windows and especially windows updates friendly it really does not matter how good they might actually be at detection of corruption trust has been lost by tagging windows period.
To each his/ her own but I'll never use them again,
