    you can find trial downloads from legitimate sources.you dont have to download from torrent sites.and yes there can be malware in the file.does this download perhaps come with a keygen? piracy has its perils.nough said.

    I should give you some torrent links then you could come back and I would help you remove all the Trojans, etc.

    It is fairly dangerous using any executable from a pirate torrent site. It is common to add maleware to these executables. The author makes a living selling the personal data they steal from your computer. With an OS you are doubly screwed. You have little chance that it will ever be detected.
