Have used it for years. No problem. If you travel a lot, and communicate with people around the world, it is a very convenient way to keep track of what time zone you are communicating with. Small and unobtrusive icons load to the upper right corner of your desktop, that you put there as needed. My attempt to install QLock on my new laptop was thwarted however by Trend Micro which deleted the .exe without asking me.
