Mike, are the boxes that Unchecky unchecks become unavailable or frozen or can they be checked if the user desires to include the "freebee", not that anyone would. and is Unchecky updated often in respect to definitions, like in preventing the installation of unwanted junk?

Hi Bill,
It does not give you a choice.  It just unchecks extra boxes, at least
this has been my experience since I started running it back in 2014.
Once in awhile you might hear Jaws report Unchecky catching something
and unchecking it.
Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

Hi, Brian. I have hesitated to use Unchecky, because I don't always want
all options unchecked. Does Unchecky give you the option to check some
items, and leave others unchecked, or is it an across-the-board uncheck?

And if you want a utility with a very light footprint that unchecks all
this crap for you (at least the vast majority of the time), have look at
Unchecky <https://unchecky.com/>.  Even though I tend to be about as
careful as anyone can be about unchecking "offers" for bundled software,
if I get in a rush I can sometimes miss.  Unchecky has been an asset in
keeping potentially unwanted programs off my computer for around 5 years
now.
