    Why is it, that antivirus software always reacts on using keygens?

    Because many of them are indeed, trojans, stealers and viruses.
    And yes, I know about false positives but it takes 2 minutes to mix/crypt a chrome pass stealer and a non infected keygen and get hundreds/thousands of full pass databases.
    I recommend using keygens only in VMware and virtual environments to activate warez.

    What software do you use in case u got a mac? I used Crossover for a long time, too. I am on a mac...

    by now I always use Wine Bottle, I think it is a virtual environment.

    thanks for the link.

    its the structure of the keygens that trigger antivirus.
    if there really were trojans and viruses in the packages in a scale worth mentioning we would be literally drowning in denounces and complaints.

    now, if you pick your stuff from a random unknown source were there is no feedback on the resulting downloads well.. surprise

    They're basically the same in that they provide containers which emulate a different OS. Virii that break through different OSes are usually rare.
