ForceASPI was written to install Adaptec's ASPI on systems that didn't have either an Adaptec SCSI card or a qualifying Adaptec software package installed, thereby bypassing the licensing restrictions, and is considered Warez (pirated software).
Absolutely. Although I wouldn't worry about the warez implications with version 4.60 at this point since Adaptec has made newer versions freely available. I suspect the only reason 4.60 still has the restrictions is that Adaptec just didn't want to be bothered going back and rebuilding the installation package. But, that's just my opinion.

The system won't work any better for reading/writing CDs or reading DVDs since it doesn't use ASPI for those tasks. The only thing the ASPI layer does is allow you to use other software that does require an ASPI layer. If you have such software, then by all means install and use a system level ASPI layer. But if you don't have such software, then there isn't any need for ASPI. In mrk1283's case, he does have some software that requires an ASPI layer and his ASPI installation isn't causing any problems, so I would recommend leaving it in place.

What do you mean it can't be uninstalled? That isn't my experience.
