Alright so I was recommended by many people to try out this simple way of earning money, Gomez Peer. If you haven't heard about it you just download the program and let it run in the background through your Java. As some as you may wonder about is 'what if it hacks you?' Well, its not suppose to. Everything is through text files no attachments are suppose to go through you and your private files are never read. I do believe this to be true, I don't think it could run very long without being found out if it was stealing information. Though one thing did stop me from using the program immediately. Today during one of the times it was monitoring the sites activity my Norton came up with an alert. It had just blocked a malicious toolkit from getting to my computer. I checked out the attack, it was trying to go through my Gomez Peer Java at the time Gomez Peer was checking my computer. Now this could be a huge coincidence and any toolkit would register going through the Gomez Peer Java, or this could be a sign that I shouldn't trust Gomez Peer. Either way, I am taking it as a sign that I shouldn't trust them. I have already uninstalled the program, easy small earnings are no reason for me to risk my computers safety. Have you guys checked this site out before? Are you currently a part of it? I would love to know your feedback on the site.

Actually I tried Gomez Peer since the date it was available, namely on September 1st 2010. Since it was offered by Mylot, so I trusted it. I installed it and then I was active online everyday. But my total earning was just one cent. It is so discouraging. Besides, my anti-virus ever warned me of this software. And actually it slowed down my computer. So finally I uninstalled it since I didn'tw ant to take a risk with such a low earning. It is not fair and I am not interested in this kind of online earning any more. I love China

Sorry I made a mistake here. Mylot offers Cash Gopher. But actually Cash Gopher and Gomez Peer works the same. But at least Cash Gopher is better since I don't know when Gomez Peer will approve my account and it is always pending even if I have been online for a long time.

I have been running GomezPeer for several months. It is a reliable program which is in no way malware. Its business is to test how fast websites will load on different configurations and to produce a report for its customers. It does NOT use a browser to do this and works in the background, while you are not using your PC. I use Avast AV and I have only once had a warning about a possible malicious software. I believe that GomezPeer check the data that they are sending meticulously but, inevitably, there will be occasions when something goes wrong. Whilst checking the single incident I encountered, I discovered that the warning was NOT because of an actual attempt by malicious software but due to the fact that many AV products use a list of POTENTIALLY harmful addresses. In other words, all access to certain addresses is blocked by the AV software. I suspect that this is what Norton was doing in your case. I have every confidence in GomezPeer. I believe that they are a responsible company and they certainly pay reliably. I am also glad that I have a good AV product installed which reliably protects me against any potential threats, even if there may actually be no real threat.

I agree with owlwings, Gomez Peer is safe and part of Compuware Corporation's 'Last Mile' user based web testing. You probably won't make a huge amount on it unless you run it on many computers thus accumulating a lot of work/online time from each different computer's individual online and processing time. But if you're the type of person who has a few computers to hand that spend most of their time online then it is worth it. :)

Hi! I have been with Gomez Peer almost a year, I have no problem at all with it. My computer run normal and it never slow down. And I did not get any warning sign from my antivirus software. Maybe only Norton gives such a warning. I have been receiving payment for almost 5 times since I join, and I have no problem with it. I think GP is a great program and at least you earn something by doing nothing. As what I get the information from GP, they only use our computer resources to process some data. So, I think that should be fine with me. I suggest if you having an extra computer, you can let it run on it, and of course, do not save important data or information on that computer.

Hi gothtini, I found about this site when I was surfing the net one day. The idea seems to be pretty cool so I checked it out. Everything looked fine except they do welcome worldwide members. Since I reside in Malaysia, sure enough I can't join them. I was a bit disappointed then but now after reading your thread I have to agree with you that risking our computer's safety for easy small earnings is not worthwhile.
