I have been running win7enterprise-64 since 2010. It is time to reinstall to
fix some errors. I have product keys from when I worked for a disability
charity. It is really tedious to download from possibly reputable sources.
Pale moon allows for installation of torrent support. On Pirate Bay, I found
a torrent that claimed to be Genuine Untouched Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit.
With torrent download it took about 8 hours overnight. When I burned it to a
DVD R/W Microsoft Security Essentials said it found a virus, Trojan:
Win32/Vflooder!rfn :
https://www.microsoft.com/security/portal/threat/encyclopedia/entry.aspx?name=Trojan%3aWin32%2fVflooder!rfn&threatid=2147693767&enterprise=0 .
This is a nasty virus that allows an attacker to take control of your
computer. Microsoft and NSA came to mind as likely perps. I copied to
contents of the DVD to a folder and used Microsoft Security Essentials to
clean the infection, a file called Done.exe

I tried to record my observation on the comments at Pirate Bay. But they
want registration first. Give me a break, given their criminal history who
would register?

Since I now had a clean distro on HDD, I ran setup. It seems it was only
Win7 Home Edition.

If anyone here is a registered user of Pirate Bay, please copy my complaint.
