    I've stopped my VPS subscription awhile ago and I am about to start using GSA SER and Scrapebox again but I want to run them on my own machine which has 16GB ram and i4790k CPU.
    Is it safe to run it on my own machine? I have Malwarebytes Premium and going to get Karsefsky in 5 days or so. What do you think?

    If they are legit copies then yes it's safe.
    But you still need proxies or you'll get problems.

    Yeah everything's legit, I'm worried about getting infected actually.

    Yes both are safe because they don't use a webbrowser to interact with the websites.
    That's the reason why infected websites can't run scripts that normally would infect your computer with a virus.
    Kaspersky is always a good option :).

    If your copies were purchased by you, you will be fine. Try keep malwarebytes in the background if you feel worried.

    You will be alright when auto posting with both software. However, if you are manual posting with scrapebox you need your anti virus software on.
