First of all, some computer users state that Speed Test come together with various unnecessary programs, for instance, PC Performer, MyPCBackup, FreePDFReader, and Conduit. All of them are installed on the system when the user does not pay enough attention to the installation wizard itself and does not unselect the installation preferences. Thus, you should always select custom installation to be able to leave only those programs that you really want to install on your system. The other feature of Speed Test which seems rather suspicious is the fact that it is going to gather such data as the websites that you visit, the advertisements that you see on those ads, the searches that you perform using your default search engine, and the like.
