Do NOT try to install from any of the links in this article! The *&^%$#@! thing will automatically start to install Google Chrome and Google tool bar. Instead, go http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/ and be sure to uncheck the option to install Google Chrome and toolbar BEFORE downloading. Misbegotten Adobe should be shot for pulling this stunt!

Use IE8 here and the same warning for it as well.

The last Link in the article takes you to the same place you posted.

Not sure what your problem was but good to have it settled. :)

Something weird is going on because when I clicked on it the first time, it started directly installing all three. I just clicked on it again and it took me to the page I linked. Same warning though; you have to opt out before downloading.

These marketing tie-in checkboxes really make my blood boil.

Same here, especially when they are as sneaky as this one.
