That’s the problem with keygens and pirated software in general.

You never know for sure what’s been added in there.

For the cost of windows 8 anyone would have to be a fool to run a pirated copy even if the original hack to activate windows 8 was clean other nasty Info seekers will install back door trojans sending them you credit card info and many other things for $39.95 is it worth it Hell no.:rolleyes:

Indeed. But I’d wager that no one (or very few) would pay attention to that.
