Just a heads up. I use Adobe Digital Editions to download my library eBooks from BorrowBox. Upon installation, it background installed Norton Security (30 day trial) without any prompt and I didn't see advanced options to opt out of it when installing Adobe Digital Editions today. It uninstalled just fine and didn't leave any reminents, just don't open the program as the product hadn't activated yet but was running in he background.

Thanks.

Were you performing a clean installation, or an in-app update? + Windows or Mac? + and Region?
