How to install or update the Adobe Flash Player plugin without installing the Adobe Download Manager (DLM)

When trying to install or patch/update the constantly insecure Adobe Flash Player using the download page (http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer), they are trying to lure their users into installing not only McAfeee Security Scan Plus, but also their own sneaky Adobe Download Manager (DLM).

Everybody understands that the DLM is simply a way to get unsuspecting users to install yet more Adobe crap, to give them more control over our computers.

Lately, they have even removed the direct link to the installer for users that didn't want to use the DLM.

Luckily, there is still a way to install Flash Player manually. Just check

Good luck!
