Question Will I be Banned for this?

I downloaded http://www.blacksunsoftware.com/mousotron.html it keeps track of how many keys I hit when i type or play a game, and also tells me how many times i clicked my mouse button. And i was wondering if valve would pick this up some how as a cheat. Please Let me know thank you

No, not at all 100% safe, this may reduce the response time of your keyboard and mouse.

Is there any point to it or and you just confirming leftmouse and wads get spammed by a gamer.

Added to the list if anyone else asks.

This may increase the response time of mouse, since it's installing an additional mouse hook in your system, which intercepts mouse clicks/movements.

Give me a break, I'm on Oxy Contin, of course it can't make the mouse faster.

Sounds similar to WhatPulse. If you are someone that has that "OMGZ I MUST PRESS MORE KEYS THAN YOU!", they *used* to have 'teams' and leaderboards that you could join to see who had the most keypresses/mouse clicks/mouse travel.

do you guys have comprehension problems? an increase in response time is a SLOWER response.

say it INCREASES the response time from 5ms to 20ms. that is surely an increase in time, yet a slower a response.

They still have :0

Whatpulse seems to be VAC-secure (why shouldn't it ) as well as I'm using it since 8 years and got no ban...

So it's not at all 100% safe?

It won't get you banned, but it may reduce the responsiveness of your mouse.
