Is there a tool or app I can use to check what <new> programs have been added to those in the CP\Add or Remove Programs listing?

 

When I download a program I want I often find that I also get several “add ons” that I do not want. In theory I can remove the unwanted programs. But only if I can spot them.

 

Is there an app that makes evident all the “new” programs?

 

Thanks.  ....batpark

As you say sometimes when downloading applications, other rubbish is also bundled with them. Some of this junk may or may not show in your add/remove programs list.

 

To prevent this happening you should install this great little program which will deselect all garbage sometimes packaged with other apps.
