Programs I installed:
VLC Media Player 3.0.16 (x64)
Process Lasso 10.4.2.16 (x64)
Core Temp 1.17.1
LibreOffice 7.2.5 (x64)
OpenShot Video Editor 2.6.1
Google Back up And Sync 3.56.3802.7766
GIMP 2.10.30
Rufus 3.17.1846 (portable)
Speccy 1.32.740 (Portable)

Programs updated:
Mozilla Firefox 960.03 (x64)
WinRAR 6.10 (x64)
Virtual Box 6.1.32

After the install/update, I found a shortcut on my desktop to some game on Facebook, but no idea which installer put it there. When I run installers manually, I always make sure to uncheck any extras/offers they provide, mainly for safety. I deleted the shortcut, so can't tell you what it was now.

It comes with "Core Temp" and we are probably going to remove it soon from Patch My PC because of this since there is no way to prevent this game from installing!

Thanks for letting me know. I'll just update Core Temp manually, if it has an update then. Great job with PatchMyPC! Quite convenient!
