I am sure you are not alone and I too openly admit that when faced with aquiring software cheaply it can be very tempting. Howver, my concience is clear and I have only legitimate software on my PC. I feel better knowing that if one day Microsoft or Adobe or whoever places a "bomb" in the software I will not be affected. By this I am talking of the now infamous Office 2000 Professional CD's that were doing the rounds. (By infamous try typing GC6J3, which is the first box of the product code into Google) If you tried to install Service pack 1 it stopped the program from working and you could not even get to view your documents. Serve those right for installing it in the first place.
