BEST TOOL FOR MAKING SURE YOU’VE OPTED OUT
Unchecky is a really simple app that automatically rejects any “special offers” and other crapware that gets bundled with apps. It’s light and simple, and you can just leave it running in the background. It’s especially useful if you’re the kind of person who likes to try out new software — or if you have someone in your house who is inclined to do a lot of downloading.
Recommended alternative: Ninite ( ninite.com), which is a godsend if you’re installing your favourite free apps on a new system. It allows you to check the apps you want, and it will download and keep them up to date for you, while opting out of any other associated apps.
