Windows 7: Are you a mad software installer?

Are you a mad software installer?

Do you love installing new software and crave the when the time comes to install the next piece of software?

If that describes you then why not give wakoopa a go. Its members learn what software their contacts use, and receive recommendations for better software. The service includes a desktop tracker, which is a small application that runs in the background on a user's computer. The application gathers the information about running software and games, and then publishes the information to their profile at the web site.

How it works

Wakoopa uses a discreet client side tracking software that logs which programs and web applications you use, which in turn is sent to your profile. The client mostly consists of a tray icon but can also inform you of alerts from Wakoopa friends and Wakoopa itself. Wakoopa tracks how long you use each application and can also provide you with software suggestions based on your software usage. There are also profiles for every appliciation listed in Wakoopa's database that are editable using a moderated system to keep the information up to date, it is also used to show the statistics of how long the application and how long the application's been used.

This could be useful to find the most popular software for certain tasks, but I dunno about sending information out, even if it is just software profile and info.

It doesnt send document type information out, only which programs your using. So if your listening to a song in winamp for instance, itl just name winamp as a program youve used.

This totally sounds like spyware. Any app that "logs which programs and web applications you use" and then sends them off is a privacy risk.

IMO if you value your pc you should never install this kind of software.
