    Finding Cinema 4D installed on my computer without my knowledge or consent gave me a scare.

    Thankfully I'd heard of the product before, but the fact it had suddenly appeared was concerning. There was certainly no way I was going to open it without being sure it was genuine.

    Installing anything without consent is unacceptable, no matter how great the software is or how well-intentioned the motive.

    If the Cinema 4D integration is so good, Adobe should talk about it up-front, selling the benefits and allowing customers to opt in, not sneaking it in round the back like some shady browser toolbar. To say it was explained in the EULA is like saying the plans were on display in the bottom of a locked filing cabinet stuck in a disused lavatory with a sign on the door saying ‘Beware of the Leopard'.

    Furthermore, the response of 'Adobe Community Professionals' on this has been appalling – wilfully misunderstanding the concept of consent and why it's necessary. If that's reflective of Adobe's attitude in general it's not surprising something this misguided has happened.

    What else are Adobe installing without my knowledge?
