@MissySnowie I don't disagree on any particular point. As I gave myself as example, newbies, in whatever game, should always shy away from automated installers: not because they're potentially dangerous per se, but simply because it pays to familiarize yourself with the game's structure/locations, etc, first.
My initial reply was meant to put things a bit into perspective, though, pointing out different tools pose a (potentially) different risk factor; and that there's no real need to start fearing rather innoccuous tools like an .OIV installer. But to reiterate: every tool that is allowed to install, can potentially uninstall too. That is simply how it works.
Also, like I said. knowing what you're doing, goes for every piece of software you install, from drivers, to complex installers, whether on Windows or just games. And to only use trusted sources. And even then, there be dickheads, like Quant, who will blatantly abuse said trust. And that ought to make us stay vigilant -- but not to the point where the entire community (and especially newbies) become highly suspicious of everything, was my point.
