If you download Picexa from picexa.com, it is unlikely that you will download third-party software alongside. However, if you trust software bundles, you might find that you need to remove other potentially unwanted programs (e.g., BoBrowser and PC Optimizer Pro) and adware developed by SuperWeb LLC (e.g., Spice Nice and Shop Easy).
