It would be illegal ... there is a free edition which is surely enough, in my opinion, it is hardly worth the risk ... most of the keys you can only obtain after 'accepting' a whole mass of spyware and adware which is just another twist
Your friend can get these keys from hackers networks such as Astalavista but i wouldn't recommend it

Just stick with the free version of AVG. As dyserq said, u go and get a key from the internet, I tell u that without good protection ur pc will be full of viruses, trojan, spyware, adware and that kind of stuff.
I know a website where u will find the product key for almost any program u need, but u visit that website the same moment u close ur browser there is a javascript trojan in ur pc.

So just stick with the free version.

heh... the spyware and trojans are only temporarily there... I mean for free stuff what do you expect? (not trying to promote illegal activity mods)

http://housecall.trendmicro.com/ and Microsoft Anti-Virus take care of my computer .
