How to avoid installing bundleware with the help of Unchecky

Installing third-party programs isn’t the minefield it was during the good old days of Windows XP. But every now and then, some desktop apps still try to sneak annoying tool-bars and other software past you during installation.

Known as bundle-ware, the options to not install these additional programs can be easy to miss if you’re not paying attention. That’s where a utility called Unchecky can come in handy, by watching over third-party installations so that you don’t have to. It should work with most software and is well worth using when it does.

Checking in with Unchecky

Visit the Unchecky website and click the big, orange Download button on the front page. Install the program as you normally would—it should be a quick process.
