It works quite well. I discovered it added a few entries to Hosts to block some sites.

My question may have slipped through the cracks:
When downloading free Macrium through Cnet:
What's interesting is that there are pe 3,4,5 Rescue options as well. I downloaded a pe4x64.zip file but not sure what you do with it.
When you unzip it under windows\8.0\... it contains a winpe.wim.

Is this the basis of a Winpe Rescue CD without downloading WAIK? Any comments?

Curious. It just dawned on me that when I updated Shockwave player yesterday, Unchecky didn't uncheck the selection for the Google add-ons; I had to uncheck them myself.

I am sure SIW2 would know. Why don't you send him a PM.

Has anyone used "Unchecky" with the CNet download of free Macrium v5
Cnet v5 download = 2.2MB ... an installer
FileHippo v4.2 download = 41.8MB ... and totally clean

I think from Cnet you only get the downloader in the first step, not the real program. And then you have to watch out and decline all the time.

Unchecky is supposed to work only while installing a program, not when downloading. I've downloaded MR free from CNET but don't want to try to install it on my computer since I already have the Pro version installed.

Maybe a storm in a teacup?
I downloaded using the downloader and didn't get any offers. It just downloaded the installer.
I didn't run the installer since I have (free) Macrium already installed. I am assuming that the downloaded installation exe is pure Macrium with nothing added (how could they add anything).

I just downloaded another program with Cnet (that was the only options) and they wanted me to agree to 3 junk programs. I declined twice but the first one I blindly clicked 'Accept' and sure got that junk. Had to uninstall it. Tha has happened to me a few times before.
