There are number of web resources (URL Link Scanners) which can be used to check suspicious/unfamiliar sites or get second opinions.-- Use several different vendors when performing queries to confirm the results of page content. Even doing this, you still need to be cautions of other links on the page itself which can redirect to a malicious page.

For information purposes:  That tool is used these days primarily for processing illegal installs of Windows.  Surely...your Google search revealed that.

 

Such acts are in violation of the Forum Rules:  "No subject matter will be allowed whose purpose is to defeat existing copyright or security measures. If a user persists and/or the activity is obviously illegal the staff reserves the right to remove such content and/or ban the user. This would also mean encouraging the use or continued use of pirated software is not permitted, and subject to the same consequences."

And I will add that the practice of using keygens, cracking tools, warez, torrents or any pirated software is not only considered illegal activity but it is a security risk which can make your system susceptible to a smörgåsbord of malware infections, remote attacks, exposure of personal information, and identity theft.

i seen the answer on the microsoft website someone answered it was safe to use and he got 150 likes i reported him for that lies and i seen more pages on microsoft with the same question the answer is iIs it safe to use?

If you're the coder, yes.

If you're anyone else, probably, not.

The problem lies in the fact that the Loader hooks into the system at a very low level, and can do pretty much what it likes.

There is a trisk that the coder has inserted code to allow access to the system and your data, and could have the ablity to turn your machine into one over which you have little or no control.

 

Stay well clear.

 

Apart from that their function breaks the license agreement which you agree to when you install Windows, and this automatically turns you into a fraudulent user, who could be sued for damages.
