One of my new favorite applications! Keep unwanted programs out of your PC.

Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUPs) seem to be plaguing installations everywhere.  When you run the installer for many free applications and updates you download from the Internet, all too often they are bundled with unrelated adware that sometimes is borderline malicious.  Have you ever installed a program, then afterwards discovered that your browser’s homepage has changed and there are a LOT more ads in your webpages?

I was thrilled when I heard about this great program that can help keep these pesky PUPs from infesting your computer!

Let me introduce you to one of my new best friends …… Unchecky!

When you run some installers, they default to opting into installing these PUPs, sometimes even trying to trick you into installing them by irregularly coloring the buttons or with deceptive wording.

Unchecky keeps these unwanted programs out of your computer by automatically unchecking these unrelated offers and even warning you if the installer successfully tricks you into clicking a button to accept an unwanted offer.  Great!

More good news.  Unchecky is FREE and 100% clean of adware!  You can find more info and download it here:
