What really happens to your computer’s registry when you run a keygen? Watch this helpful video below to find out.
Nearly all computer users have installed and made use of cracked software at some point in time. With so many torrent and peer to peer download sites, it’s not difficult to find and download the latest hacks.
Many are also aware that some of these applications contain malicious software and viruses. The most cautious of us may run several virus scans on the downloaded files before running the install. But whilst this is certainly good practice, it is simply not good enough.
Besides the threat of trojans, worms and other harmful exploits, the real problem lies in the keygen. These small applications which help generate serial codes to unlock the software can harm your computer in ways many people would not know.
This video clip not only shows you what really happens when you run a keygen.exe file on your machine, but also how to monitor and combat these effects by installing to virtual layer. Once you are finished using the software, the virtual layer allows all files to be easily removed unlike uninstalling, which leaves these harmful changes in your registry.
Also another helpful tip on how to “hack” sign up sites so you don’t need to register is also shown in the video.
