Hi I have lots of tips I would like to share. Please let me know if I'm breaking forum rules.
Hi Do you ever see all those bundled PUP's you don't want when down loading free software. Always chose custom install, but here's a little helper for those dang PUP's.

http://unchecky.com/

Have you ever felt, while installing software, that the installer tries to push additional unwanted programs at all cost? Ever missed a checkbox, and spent hours afterwards removing adware? Ever opened your browser after an installation, only to find out that you have a new homepage, a new search engine, or even a new browser?
Unchecky aims to keep potentially unwanted programs out of your computer.

I had 4 toolbars at one time, about 18 months ago, before I knew to watch for that. Even now, it takes some dedication to miss all the unwanted PUP's.!

Yes! PUP's are becoming a real problem on the internet world. That software should help a little, but always down load from the author if possible and always chose the custom install when down loading freeware.
thanks for you reply!!
