You're paying for their service, not for the programs.

This disc is called customizer and does not contain none of those programs, so you stole something else. Customizer is a geeksquad based program that works on a timer. it stops people like you from stealing things and mass producing them. They how ever do not contain AVG or CCleaner. How do I know? Well I've used the disc my self.

On the wednesday before black friday they had me come in and run the disc on about 50-75 computers to have them pre-ready. And I still run the disc periodically when they get backed up and need help.

The current version is 3.5. Once a certain date hits, that disc is dead. There are ways around that, but I will not go in to detail as a customer or non bestbuy employee is not suppose to own that. Matter of fact I believe it's illegal since it does ask you if you are authorized or not to use it.

So you my friend got a hold of something else

And a side note, freeware doesn't mean disallowed for commercial use. It depends on the specific license.

I'm not saying it doesn't but he claims to have stolen a "TOP SECRET" CD which he clearly didn't He stole the wrong thing. There is a program on one of the discs geeksquad uses actually made by either geeksquad/bestbuy or a third party company paid by bestbuy to make. Owning that CD is illegal i believe. But what he is talking about is stuff available to the net. that can be produced and used as wished.

It was ages ago, so excuse me if my memory is a bit fuzzy on the exact applications, but I could've sworn I saw AVG and CCLeaner on there, along with some payware programs like Norton. The application would not open though, but I found this out by looking through it's program files.

That's easiest enough to bypass. Once a certain date hits, the disk is NOT dead. The disk doesn't have a clock built into it or self destructs. The software just probably looks at system time or checks a server and then locks itself. Changing system clock before utilization or a hexeditor on the probable .ini file will most likely crack it.
Once again...

thats why i said there are ways around it but i wont state them. never said it was impossible. matter of fact taking a quick trip to the bios can solve that problem.

I used to work at CC as a tech, and we found nudey pictures of people all the time that they put on your computer.
Normal looking people with pics of themselves doing weird ass ****.
