Unchecky

Are you concerned about unwanted add-ons when installing new software? Unchecky keeps an eye out for unrelated offers and alerts you if an application attempts to install something extra. Adware, search toolbars, and other annoyances can easily creep in if left unchecked, so let Unchecky do the hard work. Note: the software will function on Microsoft Windows XP and above.

Once you’ve installed Unchecky, the software will update automatically when new features are available, so you’ll always be running the most recent version. For a full list of features, visit the Changelog page for a full roundup.

The website features an informative Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) page that aims to answer the majority of your queries. Head here first if you’d like to know more about the software, or if you require assistance uninstalling, translating to other languages, or if you encounter issues with existing anti-virus tools (which can happen on occasions, depending on your anti-virus provider).

There’s a video on the Unchecky homepage that showcases a brief overview of the software, or alternatively you can head to the “Press” section to view a collection of additional videos.
