    Hi,

    I Just checked out what this program does and if I correctly looked at the program you mention here, all this does is help not check items when installing programs???

    Don't you think You need to manually uncheck and watch what you are installing on your computer??

    why would you even try this software?

    so i contact Unchecky author and here is his E-mail to me, and as you can see its does not do what you say it does.

    Hi Tony,


    Unchecky is free from any extra software, including PUPs and adware. In fact, Unchecky was designed to prevent these kinds of things!

    Possibly the thread author downloaded Unchecky from a third party website, which bundles applications with additional unwanted software. Unfortunately, that's not something we can control.

    Best regards,
    Michael.

    Hi,

    it still looks like software that can absolutely cause conflict while installing.. there is no way ever it would be able to tell all the different types of installs that come about the internet..

    I think what you might be looking for a real solution is just to point your parents to a website that is labeled safe for downloading.. I mean if your parents are "old" what could they be wanting to install so much?

    send them to

    MajorGeeks if they want software- he even lists if it has anything you need to click
    MajorGeeks.Com - MajorGeeks

    but hey, oh well just try unchecky..

    Safe software download sites

    So we then come to the question which are the safe software download sites. Well today, if I have to download freeware, I usually prefer to download it from the developers website. This ensures that I get the latest version too. But if I have to visit a download sites, I prefer and trust the following:

    • Majorgeeks.com
    • Softpedia.com
    • TechSpot.com
    • Filehippo.com See this.
    • SnapFiles.com
    • fileforum.betanews.com
    • downloadcrew.com

    Hey Tony B.. with all respect, you may want to learn to dig in and read a little further.. the answer lies within..

    google.


    I'm trying to show you that even you can learn yourself.. I hope in the time you were waiting for this answer, you already knew it..


    1. Install Sandboxie. You may need to reboot into Safe Mode when installing some necessary drivers, but otherwise the process will be smooth.
    2. Launch a sandboxed web browser. This will run in parallel to your normal browsing session. Here, you can download files and install programs and they'll remain in the sandbox.
    3. Run apps via the main Sandboxie window. Any apps that are part of the sandbox will have a yellow border around them when you hover over the window (as seen above).



    Here is an article pulled straight from googling ....

    have you even tried to browse youtube???

    As Sandbox isolates you from most of system, how could driver finder and down-loader work from it.
