My desktop, not yours


Dear Adobe and Microsoft,

Giving you permission to download security updates to your products does not mean I want you to reinstall your unwanted icons on my desktop.  I deleted them for a reason.  When I want them back, I will ask.  Until then, get the fuck off.


P.S. Adobe, this also means do not override my default PDF viewer with your shitty product full of security holes.  I only have you on this machine in case I run into a PDF that a third-party tool can’t deal with – don’t try my patience too far.
