Fix Quicktime Installer False PUP Warning

Sebastian Cepleanu 5 years ago • updated by Unchecky 5 years ago 2


When Installing QuickTime, selecting Typical for some reason gives you a false PUP warning from Unchecky, even though Quicktime does not install any potentially unwanted programs.

Answer

Answer
Not a bug
Unchecky is designed to always warn when choosing a typical installation, because lots of installers are installing potentially unwanted programs together with it, without further notices. Perhaps QuickTime doesn't do this, but Unchecky doesn't have a way to assure it. Also, it might start doing it in the future.
Using custom doesn't make this box pop-up.
