Software too cheap to be true?

I've put Autoroute 2004 into eBay search and found loads on offer below 10 pounds. Do you get working software for this kind of money?

I bought Norton Internet security 2004 for £14 off Ebay,would have cost me about £45/£50 in shops. And it was the real thing. I think it is a risk you take. There are a lot of good sellers on Ebay just check the feedback and what other people have bought from them.

WorthyDeals has some good cheapo products.

What puts me off, is they are using many spyware companies to advertise on their site, and they advertise:

If you have ever downloaded music or software from the Net, your computer could be infected with dangerous SpyWare. Get rid of it with SpyWare Nuker

SpywareNuker is rouge!

Thanks for input so far everyone. The core of my question is still about what appear to be copies being sold on ebay. In this case its microsoft, who I'd have thought would have 100% security by now, if I were to this suspect but well priced software do I risk say msoft finding out via invisible to me internet comms?
