Talking Please help me get Free software from my school

Hello,
I'm in high school and they have all kinds of great software on the computers including: Photoshop 7,Illustrator,GoLive 6.0,etc. about $2000 worth, but they have the C drive and most all features blocked blocked with a password.

They made it so that all the folders are shortcuts only (.lnk). Most everything is blocked too eccept D drive, A, and Programs wich contains only those shortcuts. They run XP.

Does anybody know how I can get to the hard drive (C) or the full programs? Surprisingliy they have Easy CD Creator too.

Any help is appreciated.

Dude, Just download them. It's gonna be pretty hard to get them from school as you will (I think) need the setup files...And they probably don't even store them on the computers! Just download

It is the best idea - as I said on the other Thread you put up, you're not going to get them running even if you could view them on the Computer or indeed transfer them.

I find it funny you said "If you don't give a shit about your pc download Kazaa" seeing as how Limewire has as much if not more spyware then KaZaA.

Kazaa is virus riden and it is easier to get caught for sharing on. There are much better alternatives of dl subjective material than p2p apps. And I am not talking about bit torrent, for those of you who do not know that bit torrent uses p2p protocol.

If you're looking for p2p programs try Soulseek, Warez P2P, Ares. All 3 of these can be found on Download.com

Soulseek is VERY good for music. It sucks for apps and such. If you are on cable you should have free access to usenet. You can find just about anything you want on usenet. If you don't try getting access to a private openap server. Most of them always has a VERY good selection of apps.

The only place I go for apps is usenet and a private Openap server. For music I use soulseek.

hmmm i don't think it's very wise to support warez on a public forum... but whatever floats your boat.

http://packetnews.com << very nice site for entire albums, videos, pron, apps. Gotta learn to use irc tho. They have a forum there (i believe) so if you get stuck they should be able to help.

Default You want to get in?

It happen to me also... to not be able to do what i want because a sick ass put a password on the directories... now i know how.

It's so easy...

http://www.mirror.ac.uk/mirror/ftp.u...4-08-16-DE.iso

Go there and download Knoppix -burn image(iso)- on a CD
if you don't have a burning prog then go there:

http://www.download.com/3120-20_4-0....tisan&tg=dl-20

Once it is burned... go to school put it in your cd drive then boot.

You will have full access and you will be able to do anything.

you're better off pirating.

knoppix is a good idea if you have A LOT of bandwidth and a lot of space on a ftp server. Plus they probably don't even keep the setup / installation stuff on their computers. read what furgy wrote.

Why do you think that this program is spyware free? If it trys to install spyware through an option, don't you think that it probably installs spyware automatically?
