I'm wondering if it's really effective in stopping malware/viruses/worms.
I've recently installed this on my laptop and turned off the learning mode. So far everytime I open an application, it flashes a warning about precautions. I'm not sure about putting a rule about it since my knowledge about the integrity of an application is pretty limited.

it's a bit complicated trying to analyze which application is not harmful, you know? Is there some way I'll know if that app.'s dangerous or not? Considering the fact that there are tons of malware out there that can disguise itself as part of the system...

Other than that, is SSM worth installing?
