Free tool stops unwanted software

Today’s free tool stops unwanted software from being installed.

Today’s freebie is my old favorite Unchecky and thanks to a recent post by Gismo’s, I was reminded of how much I love this program!

Here is how it works…

Unchecky’s sole purpose in life is to protect you from programs that try to install additional unwanted software programs.

Once installed, when you download and install a new program, Unchecky goes into action to prevent other additional programs from being installed.

  • It automatically unchecks  the unrelated program checkboxes.
  • Warns you when you try to accept a potentially unwanted offer
  • Updates Automatically

Unchecky supports Windows XP and above.

So what is not to love? Get it and save yourself the time it takes to track down and uninstall programs you don’t want.

They have a video on YouTube video and on their site that will show Unchecky  in action.  I recommend full screen so you can see it and no need for speakers since they have no verbal instructions, only music.

We have added a new page to the site called Keep Me Safe Freebies, so if you don’t have time to download it now, you can check back and get the download link here anytime (you can also find it on the Free Business Tools and Marketing Freebies page)!

Today I read about an affordable, portable USB encryption device that I wanted to share with you.

I think this is a great way to protect you PHR (Personal Health Record) and be able to carry it with you.

The device uses military grade AES 256-bit hardware encryption via a FIPS certified crypto engine.  Which translated into English means it is super safe it is the best encryption there is, secure enough to protect classified military information designated as Top Secret.

This device is easy to use, and is an affordable way to keep any removable data safe.

PC Magazine  published a review of the hardware encryption device, CipherUSB.  This nifty little device is $29.95 and applies hardware based encryption to any storage device that attaches to your USB device.

This device gives you a way to keep that data on your flash drive, flash media, flash card, protable USB hard drive and optical media safe.  It can also encrypt on Blue-Ray, DVD or CD disc.

This great little device is a product of Addonics Technologies

Here is how it works.
