It's clean. When it comes to "viruses in downloads" it really depends on where you get it from.

I see software companies like Microsoft and the rest to cite malware as a reason not to download warez, but has there ever been an objective study? They'd need a sample of newbies looking for free software versues leet inidividuals much like myself.

...but then I fear they might not want to publish the results

It's my understanding that 30% of the warez has been trojaned.  Of course that also means that 70% is clean.

It's sort-of like saying that my revolver with 2 bullets in it is 66% unloaded, so it's safe to play Russian Roulette with it.

Yeah, I know it's an unpleasant analogy, but the alternatives I could come up with were worse.
