    Don't use it, it fills your computer with spamware, adware, trojans, etc... Yesterday I just cleaned a coworkers laptop full of crap installed with this program

    It is not the site or download that causes the problem, it is the installation that loads all the crap. Don't use it.

    I've clean-installed unchecky from the original source, have been using it for awhile now. Just where did the coworker download unchecky from?

    Might be clean of mallware but still install bunch of unwanted programs (PUPs) which AVs do not look for.

    I just contacted unchecky last night and there software is clean and actually prevents the install of these programs they said if he got stuff from the install it was a d-load from not the original sorase, that there file is very small and only installs two services that silently run and helps to not install, toolbars and pups, by unchecking the stuff for you in the installers.

    I don't know if my co-worker downloaded it from another place, but all registry keys filled with pups and spyware pointed to unchecky.exe. Norton 360 was installed but seems it allowed to install all the pups and spyware, it detected after that some, but no all. So I needed to do a manual clean.
