    Starforce isnt too much of a problem anymore, the warez group ReLoaded have been pretty effective at cracking it. Though its getting more and more rare for companies to use Starforce now

    Remember people using Warez is illegal and will almost certainly contravene your organisation's acceptible use policy.

    Absolutely, I should clarify that professionally I would never use any form of warez.

    Privately however...is a whole different ball game
