    I just want to say thanks for the recommendation.

    Since becoming aware of it, I've been installing it on my customer's computers and showing them how it works. They absolutely love it and so do I.

    For those that are unaware of the product, it is a program that helps prevent the most typical nasties from being installed on your computer. It's an invaluable tool.

    I put it on all of my customer's computers as well.
    I've tried to teach all of them to always use a custom install so that they don't get bundled PUP's.
    This handy little piece of software alleviates all of that by automatically unchecking them and preventing them from installing.

    Great Tool. So many just click "Next" without bothering to read each step.
    Some software installs don't give you a "Custom" option.
    Wouldn't be without Unchecky.

    Yep, and even if they do, the end user often doesn't go there because they don't have the knowledge to know what "custom" means. Hence, they just click next, next, next, and the crapware is installed.

    Great program I also put it on my customers computers cause as mentioned customers most times don't know how to custom install.
