I also use FreeFileSync (FFS) and it's true it allows the selective exclusion of files and folders.

As far as the PUPs went, the installer gave one the opportunity to opt out of installing the PUPs. However, due to AVs and antimalware programs (Malwarebytes and Norton being the worst) being overly zealous of Open Candy like programs in the installers (they would identify the program in the installer as Open Candy even though it wasn't), ignoring the fact that PUPs are Potentially Unwanted (or Undesirable) Programs, the FFS developer was forced to dropped that source of revenue (heck, the people who "give" us free programs also have to make a living). Even after dropping the program that offered up PUPs, many AVs and antimalware programs still flag or outright block FFS during installation. Ironically, Avast, which was one AV that would flag FFS, is offering up their own PUPs.

Malwarebytes gave them the Xmas present of blocking their site. I emailed him about it when it blocked me.

VSDC for non-linear video editing. Works well even on Windows 7 PC with limited RAM.
Here is a review.

ShanaEncoder is a nice frontend for ffmpeg that works really nicely. Has a lot of options, think it's built on .NET and original author is South Korean.
