    I didn't see problems using Baidu in one of my PCs.
    The only problem is that the Program installed a Browser and some Baidu Apps without permission.
    But this program really accelerated my PC.

    I don't care if it's good, I don't care if it's free, it sneaked its way on to my PC so I delete it, same with any other program that behaves this way.
