    For what it is worth I still have Unchecky installed; I am very careful when I install a new program but I feel more comfortable knowing if I fail to uncheck a box I have Unchecky as a backup. Out of curiosity I checked the Activity Log and it didn't indicate any activity. I intend on keeping it on my Windows 10 Home Edition. And like you, I would like hearing other member's opinions.

    I've had Unchecky for 5 years, maybe more and it still works. I don't download a huge amount, but it blocked a couple of things on 26/06/19 according to the Activity log.

    There's no need to stop using it, unless it is failing to block extras being installed. New versions of it improve the ability to block extras. But, if it's still working, then you may as well keep using it.

    I thought it hasn't been updated in years though right?
