I don't have the problem, I don't have any of that; in fact all my software on all my machines are free. Download from the software companies that produced them. There not hot, there not stolen, just free the way God intended it to be.
In fact, I don't get any spyware or keyloggers since all this software automaticly downloaded to my machine from a common source complete with the source code, yep, thats right you can read it and see it all for your self, and if you want you can add to it and try to better it. If you better it, people with there machines set up to to download new testing software will check it out and inform you of the related bugs.
If your software has viruses, it simply is not added to these downloads sites call repositories.

Thank you for your time reading this, the only downside that I can think of; is there is a month learning curve.
But if we all started doing this the Major software companies would start to realize that they are just as fragile as the Music industries. If they get to greedy, we might even get smart and make the jump too http://www.debian.org/
