After installing any Adobe Product, noticed True Key installed on your computer without consent along with McAfee Scan Plus or other? Blame you for not checking the optional software, Adobe has offered when you tried to download one of their products such as Flash player or Adobe Reader or Adobe AIR (to avoid these, next time, use Unchecky or pay attention while you’re downloading or installing such applications).
