Extra software installed with out asking
« on: July 09, 2019, 11:25:09 AM »
Firstly Great tool but I'm wary of it now.  I did my updates (great).   Then thought I'd try the core temp, then bingo I've also got goodgame empire shortcut with same timestamp as core temp.  That makes me wary of the tool now.  I'm running scans on my system now to see what else got added.   I've not had that experience with ninite so may have to stick to it although you have more utilities in your list.

Please email the patchmypc.log via https://patchmypc.com/technical-support. We will review what apps were installed and try to repro where the bloatware install if coming from and remove that product from our supported product list.
