Here is how to do it correctly:
2) Use key/dll based cracks if available. Else, move to step 3.
4) Install the software and use the exe based crack/patch. Most likely the program will infect your virtual machine and also patch the software. You can send the patch to virustotal to be sure. You must also have a decent antivirus on your system. Let’s move on.
5) Open program files on the virtual machine and save the cracked programs folder to your main pc. It likely won’t be infected.
6) Download software from the original website and replace all the files with the files from the virtual machine.
7) Turn off the Virtual Machine and delete the installation disk. You can unzip the 7z/rar(created in step 3) later when you want another cracked software lol
P.S While downloading some shows/softwares, you could receive notification from your internet service provider as it is a copyright violation. Make sure to use a VPN to keep yourself safe. I personally use this VPN for all my torrent downloading after I received this message and I lost my plan.
