Has anyone here tried using Unchecky?
Unchecky is a tiny but clever tool which monitors installers, checks for the presence of adware, toolbars and similar junk, and helps to ensure this doesn't end up on your hard drive accidentally.

I'm one of the quite a few that uses it and I highly recommend it. While I have found it infallible for unchecking "offers" while running a program installer, one still needs to vigilant to watch out for sneaky attempts to bypass Unchecky. for example, Adobe Flash requires one to opt out of Google Chrome, etc. before downloading, something Unchecky is unable to intercept. Although I've yet to see it, an installer could require a box to be checked to opt out of installing crapware; I don't know if Unchecky would be able to catch that or not (although I doubt it).
