Hello all, I recently purchased a piece of software from e-bay because I've wanted it and it was $15. Anyhow, I got the disk but I started thinking...can you get a virus by installing software that's been in someone else's machine? The disk itself looks like it's a legit disk from the manufacturer and not some bootleg but I was unsure if some clown could put malware on an original software disk. Should I be cautious or can I just let this thing rip? Thanks!
JP, it's Calendar Creator 10. The box is open and clearly has been used. The e-bay ad stated as such and I have no problem with it until I started wondering if used software could be infected. Either intentionaly or if somehow a virus could migrate onto software disks somehow.
Assif, this might sound stupid but do I need to disable autorun to do that? Because when I put this thing in it's gonna start spinning within a few seconds.
