    Um... I am just wondering if all the downloads on this site legal? (I just want to be safe)

    What do you mean? (To be specific, the tweak file that let you rip mp3's with Windows Media Player, is that legal?)

    Only one way to find out. Download it, and if the FBI knocks on your door, its illegal. If nothing happens, its legal :D

    Yeah, they're legal. We don't host warez and we don't tolerate linking to warez in our forums. Some of our stuff may appear to be questionable, but it's not illegal.

    I think one is illegal, the registry key which makes Windows see that you are registered user. What happens If a person has got a pirated copy of XP, and uses that reg key.

    Nah, it's a pretty useless tweak actually. Who cares if you're registered or not? If it was an activation crack that would be different. Registration and activation are two different aminals.

    Well, we got nothing to worry about then. They're too busy stuffing their own pockets.
