File requesting administrative access

Recommended Posts

My roommate gave me this program he said he got from someplace called Bit torrent? It's supposed to be ok, but when i go to install it it asks for "Administrative of higher level access" and I'm not too keen doing that just incase something could get jacked up.

 

Should I just ignore this?

You should do a backup just in case but all software asks for the password if there is a system installer.

Photoshop will ask you for a password when you install it whether it's bootleg or not. It's a bit more complex than the average application and needs access to add things to the system. Of course, the right and moral thing to do would be to buy it either way...

If you don't know what bittorrent is, your not sure if you have Photoshop 7 or Photoshop 9, and you don't know why photoshop is asking for a password to install. You should just buy it. That being said Photoshop is damn expensive for casual use. Maybe there a less complex/less expensive program that would fit your needs.

Photoshop CS2: $650

Photoshop Elements: $80

Bittorrent: Priceless

There are some things your money can buy. For everything else there is bittorrent.

To be exactly correct we should say that Photoshop Elements has fewer features, since they can easily be counted.

 

Less is used for differences not expected to be enumerated, while fewer is correct when counting is likely to be possible.

 

For example, I might drink fewer cups of coffee with less sugar in each one. However I intend to keep drinking just as many cups of coffee as I do now.

 

Honestly I'm not trying to be difficult, it's just that I'm a writer by trade so I take these silly little things seriously. I hope I have not annoyed you, sir.

Basically, if you don't know what the stuff on that list is, you should just get Elements. If you do know, you can make a cost:benefit analysis for yourself as to whether they're worth $620. Probably not. That's why I still use my educational copy of Photoshop 7 on my Macs, and a bootleg of 6 my PC.
