Thumbs up How to download just the software you need minus the crapware

When you download internet software like browsers, media players, etc. you typically get a lot of crapware like toolbars, etc. If you want to avoid all this crap.

Here are a couple of them.

Re: How to download just the software you need minus the crapware

Actually, most of the apps installed by ninite and allmyapps do not have hidden spyware in them. But great apps neverthless. They provide a single installer which is great if you reinstall OS.

Portable Apps is one such app which you lets you carry a bunch of apps that don't need install (including open office).

For sysadm oriented folks here, I would also suggest 'Computer Repair Utility Kit V2' which has a bunch of great apps that keep your machine clean and safe. Original creators dont host this kit anymore. Search for mirrors or PM me if interested. Its about 88 mb.
