    www.crucial.com

    I was going to download a memory scanner from www.crucial.com to make sure I buy the correct type of memory for my Eec PC 1015 PEB but Fsecure said their website with the memory scanner was unsafe. Does anyone know if this is a legit company?

    Crucial is one of the best known and most trusted memory manufacturers around. They have a very good reputation for supplying high quality memory of all types. Perhaps F Secure is set to always say sites that attempt to execute anything on your PC. In fact, I just ran the scanner and although I had to tell my software firewall to let the scanner run, it ran effectively.

    I have bought RAM from crucial a few times and their memory scanner is totally safe to run.

    Ronnie,

    I agree wholeheartedly with Ted's comments. I've been using crucial.com and their memory scanner for years w/o a hitch. Their service is fast and their prices are very reasonable and the quality of the memory is very high! When I bought my last Dell desktop I purchased it with only 1Gb of memory then the same day ordered 4Gb from Crucial for less than the upgrade to 2Gb from Dell! I got the memory before the computer arrived, ditched the Dell memory module before even booting the machine. No problem at all!
    May the Forces of good computing be with you!

    The Crucial website in your above link is good, and like others have said, Crucial is a well known memory supplier.
    You can safely ignore the warning.

    WOT rates the site as OK. Are you sure you are on the crucial site?

    cheers, Paul

    Ditto!

    I use www.crucial.com for all my memory needs.
    I carry their scanner program on my Utilities CD, so I don't have to waste the time to download it when I'm at a customer's house.

    It's really handy, because I can show my customer exactly how much ram they have currently, then show them what they can buy and how much it will cost. Many people are willing to whip out the old CC and order their new ram right there on the spot.

    I would seriously question any program that says that www.crucial.com is unsafe.
    I use AVG and they never do that. Eh?

    Cheers Mates!
