Illegal torrent downloads are bad!

#1
I was having a conversation with some computer geeky types at work, and it seems they have got into the habit of not paying for the more widely used software packages. MS Work etc... One of the speccy examples claimed to have £20k worth of software on his laptop. Now, I'm an upstanding citizen and think this behaviour is unforgivable (raising prices, big shareholders missing out on dividends and so on) but if I were an unscrupulous type and wanted to get an illegal Keygen for Photoshop Elements 9 for the Mac, where would I find a trusted torrent?

Just for research purposes of course.

Many thanks.

Ask them why they downloaded MS office programs if they can almost identical software for free called Open Office?

Anyway, pirate bay is good for torrents of any kind. I heard...

Try Demonoid.com.

But you didn't hear that from me. You'd need UTorrent as well. *Cough*

A lot of the big companies are relaxed about personal piracy it's when you have some cash to be taken off you.

Although Microsoft are way smarter than mcdonalds when they discovered they are about to sue a bunch a hippys who have delusions of being anarchists they go from being threating to lobbing as some free kit to go away.

Next you'll be trying to criminalise shop lifting, bond trading and recreational looting. It's as English as warm beer, cricket and paying a fortune for your children to indulge in deviant sex with chinless aristo mutants on a off chance of getting to rule the country.

I suggest you just stick to the sites already mentioned if you have'nt heard of the site i've mentioned....

Open Office is an outstanding piece of software, and of course it is free too.

I'm enlightened after asking my Google. Demonoid is invitation only, no?

It may well be these days (as it's a private site) thats why I try to suggest Public open access sites only, however you still need a decent a Torrent client as already mentioned ie Utorrent...

Torrents.. P2P lame.

I have circa£20k worth of MS software on my laptop. And my desktops. And its all paid for. Its called the MS Partner Action Pack, and costs £235 a year.

I'd like a new car... think I'll have yours... oh, you want me to pay for it? Boot, foot, other.

Most kegens will be infected with some sort of virus/trojan. Assuming you get a keygen that your Antivirus lets through i would recomend running it in a sandbox ( Sandboxie - Sandbox software for application isolation and secure Web browsing ). Once you install the sandbox right click on the keygen and select 'run sandboxed' .This will prevent it infecting your machine if there is anything nasty lurking in it.

I assume you just want the keygen to allow you to evaluate Photoshop prior to purchasing a licensed copy ;-P

Dont waste time with torrents as bulk are infected. What you want for research purposes of course is joining a site where users post links to files on hosted servers. Majority of people review to say if good, or fake and dodgy i.e. werz-bb.com .
If you run a decent anti-virus they will flag majority of cracks and keygens as bad, even the good ones because what the file is doing is bad.
