Smartdefrag installer with Extras if not careful

Just updated smartdefrag today to 3.2 and its installer is really starting to get annoying with all the crap it wants to install.  So just a heads up as ever with installers, never choose express install always custom, they hide extra browser tools/forced search engine changes if not.

Re: Smartdefrag installer with Extras if not careful

if running win 7 / 8 do you still need a defrag tool?

Considering M/S has their own version built in to both 7 / 8 then I would say yes
Unless you have a SSD as you will degrade the life of the SSD by defraging it

@dvorak if the windows defrag was any good I wouldn't, I used to use diskeeper until they started forced new build versions at a price and settled on smartdefrag which works better than the windows tool.  Just that Iobit have an annoying installer with hidden rubbish since version 2.3ish
