Here's a perfect example. I used the Crucial Scanner, and it correctly identified my system, and it's memory. Then it went on, (as you see below), to recommend an upgrade to me.

If I accepted that, without any further research, I would buy their 32GB kit, or some other brand selling 32GB, only to find out that Windows Home Premium only supports a maximum of 16GB.

I have either, just wasted a lot of money, or I now need to upgrade to Windows 7 Pro in order to use all that DDR3.
Good way to make money out of you, that is why I don't bother with those programs as they only benefit the seller.
Also I do not like those programs probing my computer for info....what else could they be probing for?....enough said.
