Windows 8 the latest operating system released by Microsoft has been center of discussion ever since its release on 26th November 2012 for one reason or another Many people are loving the new interface but some do not like the new interface. Microsoft has been criticized for removing the start button from the desktop by most of the people. That is why many users want to try out the new Windows 8 before they buy it, & then there are some people who just want to download the new Windows 8 & do not want to pay for it. In both of these cases
people are downloading Windows 8 from illegal sources such as torrent sites like thepiratebay, torrentz.eu.
The problem with these downloads is that all of these torrents contain some or the other sort of crack or keygen to generate Windows 8 product key & to activate Windows 8. Most of these cracks or keygens contain some sort of malware code that attacks the user's computer & harms it. Now some of these cracks do work but as soon as the Windows updates itself from the internet Microsoft knows that it is a pirated Windows & Microsoft deactivates that copy of Windows. Most of these cracks are detected by major antiviruse's like Kaspersky, ESET, McAfee as malwares.
So the most safe method is to buy Windows 8, the benifits will be free technical support from Microsoft & lifetime updates. But people who are ready to take the risk might opt for the torrent download option & will go to Piratebay.
