Either buy a legal copy (and make windows more corrupt) or google all day.

you should be able to get a crack easy
just be prepared to be bombarded with porn in nearly any crack site you go onto but i suggested you get a legal copy its not too much its alot but its not too much

not only is there porn but all the spyware you can imagine, along with trojans, worms, spyware. that's where you'll find it.
I still think you should be legal.

And don't just assume that an activation won't work I've had copies activate legally several times
