prevent accidental installations of third party offers Unchecky is a small tool that can help you prevent accidental acceptance of third party sponsor offers during software installations. The program runs as a background service and monitors your software installations. If it detects any unrelated offers, it automatically unchecks them for you, so you don't accidentally install any unwanted software. We tested Unchecky with a handful of different installers and it worked particularly well with OpenCandy, AVG and some others (see our screenshots). Keep in mind that there are many different types of third party offers and installation schemes and Unchecky will not work with all of them - it missed a few during our tests. Nonetheless, Unchecky works well with most of the popular installers and uses very little resources. If you frequently find yourself overlooking third party offers and end up with unwanted toolbars or application, you definitely want to give Unchecky a try! The current version has a rather minimalist interface without any additional configuration options. We'd like to seem some logging features or notification options that keep the user informed of Unchecky's actions. Copyright Snapfiles.com

Almost perfect 4 stars by gimpguy Nov 26, 2013 (Read all my 1158 reviews)
I say almost perfect because it does, as stated by Snapfiles, miss some things, HOWEVER, this is so great for people I help all the time and accidentally install every third party software under the sun. I will be suggesting this for every user I know and yeah will be a great contributor in keeping computers cleaned up. The idea is a great one, hope to see improvements in the near future in catching 3rd party crap. Great work. showShow review details
