Looking for Windows 7 All PlusPatch 10 by Orbit30? Or Microsoft Windows Vista Developer Activation 2.0 via torrent? Do you know that Office Genuine Advantage Validation for Office 2007 and Windows Genuine Advantage Validation crack for XP and Vista download via torrent are usually infected with virus, Trojan, and many more malware?
Based on my own past experience, the minute I patch my Windows, things went haywire, my computer started to lag and the internet bandwidth consumption increases by tenfold, possibly due to the crack. My advice is, better to have the annoying blue star bugging you then to have a super slow computer with a super slow internet connection.
Let’s face it, there are no free lunch, same goes for software. The minute a genuine cracker cracks a software and release the patch to the world, hackers, virus writers and many more would hijack their ‘exe patch file’ and merge it with their malware, spyware, worm, Trojan and virus.
Software such as Microsoft Office Activator, Microsoft Windows, Adobe Photoshop, and Antivirus Software can be found in almost 90% of all computers, making these illegal cracks, keygen, patch, serial number generator and activation code generator the all time favorite among virus writer as the ultimate vehicle to spread malware.
A quick search on torrent for Office Genuine Advantage (OGA) and Windows Genuine Advantage (WGA) patch reveals a host of virus, Trojans and more ready to infect your computer and turns it into a zombie computer for mass emailing (spam).
Unlike Microsoft Office, there isn’t much of a choice apart from Windows. Linux is really user unfriendly, not to mention the lack of popular software such as Adobe Photoshop, flash, office and more is the stumbling block. Mac on the other hand is expensive and is on a league on its own.
