Safety of S-Meter Site SoftwareMany programs available on the web contain viruses, trojans, spyware, adware, keyloggers, datamining, and other scumware.
There are good reasons to be wary about downloading and installing programs from the web, because a large percentage of those available without charge, and even some that must be purchased, contain viruses, trojans, spyware, adware, keyloggers, datamining, and various other varieties of scumware. However, I assure you that none of the programs that can be downloaded and installed or run from this website contain anything thing like that. I am a professional computer programmer with many years of software development experience. I have personally inspected and tested all the programs available from this website. I assure you they all are 'squeaky clean' of all varieties of malware. None of those programs will harm your computer, steal confidential information, spy on your activities, display pop-up advertisements, or any other such thing.
Most computer users have unknowingly installed malware in the past. Many computer problems are due to the past installation of such programs. Some of those problems are practically impossible to fix, short of wiping a hard disk clean and reinstalling everything. However, many can be fixed easily. I strongly recommend the installation and regular use of a program called Ad-Aware SE, because it is able to find and remove or disable most scumware, and unlike some similar programs that could be used, it does not contain malware itself. You can download Ad-Aware SE without charge for personal use at the http://www.4Techies.com website.
