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.

Well, it looks legit, and there are good CNET user reviews.

 

However, I'd still want to double-check its work, so I doubt it would save time (if that's what it's going for). Also, one of the CNET reviews says it "doesn't respond on 3rd party software like iLivid", so I wouldn't want people thinking that they'll never get unwanted programs ever again. It's a false sense of security and people still need to be aware about what boxes are checked/unchecked.
