    It is safe to say you will receive no assistance here for pirated software. Read the forum rules prior to posting again.

    Since you made it a two part question, I will not close the thread. Answer B is the acceptable answer. Wait for the original stuff ;)

    Why do you need that particular software URGENTLY?
    Tell us what you are trying to achieve and we may be able to offer alternative freeware.

    To answer your original question... Even aside from the legal aspects, you are MUCH more likely to get viruses, corrupted files, spyware, etc. when downloading pirated files. Wait and purchase the programs legally. You will be ahead in the long run.
