Where is the Avast Fanboys now ?
All vendors want to make money from their free of charges products.
At least Avast offers products that are somewhat useful to some users like Google Chrome or DropBox unlike many security products that offer pure junk. Still I found it quite annoying after the last Avast upgrade, I forgot to uncheck install DropBox (a product that I will never use). Of coarse it was very easily uninstalled. Free software vendors have to bundle adware in order to stay in business since most users will never donate a single cent. I just don't like the software that uses tricks to fool the user into installing crap that is useless.

It will get to the point that the only way to not get an adware bundled installer it to use only portable programs if available.

Hopefully Unchecky will continue its development and be useful to users who don't pay attention.

Thanks. :D

Ok Ok hahahahaha :D :D Have it your way.
You like Avast but as you saw it began to trick users with Dropbox & Chrome. You cannot say this "at least these are useful for users ooo ok it is no problem" I think it is not acceptable. It is useful or not.
By the way Avast also trick ppl to "Free Internet Security"
You defend it "It is easily uninstalled" :p Really, thanks for the info I do not know this btw all softs can easily uninstalled by me.
and Sides are obvious now. I think in these kind of forum sites, Moderators and admins must be impartial. This is just my opinion.

I hope too. Unchecky will continue its development.

Tired of unchecking unrelated offers while installing software?

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.
