Since version 0.4, Unchecky unchecks the checkbox of the Adobe offer in IE, Chrome, and Firefox.

"Flashplayer Adobe checkmark to install MacAfee on the download page is not removed"


This. Right here, is my biggest gripe with Adobe and the way they force you to go to their website to get updates.

This issue won't be fixed since the checkbox is on their website, not in the installer.

Actually, I've tried to write a BHO for IE, but it turned out that it's not as simple as I hoped it would be. So I'll need help with this one.
If you're experienced with writing BHO plugins for IE, and/or plugins/extensions for Firefox/Chrome, and would like to contribute some code, please contact me.

Don't forget to make an extension (or userscript) that can do the same on Opera.

I've recently started work for an cross-browser checkbox unchecker, which would be good in dealing with these situations. At the moment, my target is Chrome, but it'll work (probably) in Firefox and Opera without scratch (since it's JS and it operates by DOM).
....and since my script will be BSD-licensed, there's no problem to use my code in your projects (:
Looks great, well done!
Also check out this, by JohnKiller:

The problem with a userscript is that unlike a browser extension, it can't be automatically installed by Unchecky, as it needs an additional extension such as Greasemonkey.
And so yes, the first stable version has been released (:

if you can, please list any websites that bundle malware/crapware, the filters'll be set by default (:
Would functioning as a proxy server that unchecks the checkboxes on those sites work?
I don't think it's a good idea.

Pros

  • Universal, works for all browsers.
Cons
  • We have to run an additional process/service which will function as the proxy server.
  • We will process all the system traffic, only to handle a couple of websites which are being visited about once a month.
  • We have to open a port on the system, which might conflict with other software.

I'm not very experienced with proxy servers, so I may be wrong, but that's how I see it.
Ok. Then what else would work?
Browser add-ons, such as AdBlock.

https://arantius.com/misc/greasemonkey/script-compiler.php can convert the script that was mentioned in a previous comment to a XPI that can be added to Firefox.

Hello, I've created an addon exactly for this purpose: it is named Adware Atomizer.
This piece of code automatically disable PUPs on supported websites, including the Adobe Flash Player Download page.
Please follow the installation instructions and check the 'supported websites' section to know supported websites (you can of course suggest a new one!)

Please let me know on the discussion page if you encounter any issue while using it.

That won't work since it requires the installation of the Greasemonkey addon for it to work with Firefox.

Bryan Kirk: in the current state, it works with all main browsers except IE thanks to Greasemonkey.
I can create addons for the major browsers in the future if it is enough requested, but it works as far; rewriting it as addons will only be needed if this is going to be integrated in unchecky.
согласен ! что при обновлении до версии 12 - MacAfee устанавливается без разрешения с стороны пользователя и это можно считать НЕЖЕЛАТЕЛЬНОЙ программой !! прошу положительно рассмотреть реакцию на MacAfee ( но думаю что flash player тогда остановит обноление )

Just installed Unchecky, and have a couple of queries.

1.) Is there any way of stopping Unchecky from disabling startups I want to keep;

2.) Can I use Unchecky to disable the infuriating habit of certain IOBit programmes, great as they are at their job, from setting themselves to auto-start. IOBit have told the behaviour cannot be changed, which I take to mean that they can not be arsed.

I want to keep control over start-ups, and use Startup Organiser for the purpose - it's a super programme from Meta Products.

It doesn't work in browsers that use one of the supported browsers as its backend (one example of such browser is K-Meleon).
