      Question is maxmyspeed.com safe?

      or even useful, mew? there was commercial they offer free diagonsis to help see what's slowing down computer, but I dunno if that helps. It might be kind of like those websites that offer free virus scans but then charge to remove the stuff.

      There are plenty of free anti-virus programs available. Try AVG or Avast.

      A glance at the site reveals nothing that's blatantly shady. Looks like one of those programs that tries to roll up a bunch of PC maintenance tools that are commonly available individually.

      I wouldn't waste your time or money with that site. If you've got a specific problem with your PC try to troubleshoot that directly rather than looking for a cure-all.

      What are you looking for? It's such a generic name...

      Speed Test (your internet connection)
      Speedtest.net - The Global Broadband Speed Test

      Just don't bother clicking on other stuff there because they link to their advertising partners ...

      Ping testing
      Pingtest.net - The Global Broadband Quality Test

      This is useful to measure your latency and packet loss to a particular server (especially if you play online games a lot) Requires Java (which you should already have installed anyway)

      SiSoft Sandra
      SiSoftware Zone

      Useful software to evaluate overall PC performance. I think there should be a trial version here (or maybe they have a lite, free version) Used by performance reviewers the world over.

      Futuremark Products
      Futuremark - world's most popular benchmarks and PC performance tests

      Industry standard benchmark programs where it concerns graphics and CPU.
