    windows 7

    Hi. I need windows 8 'setup.exe' file (only 8kb) please mail me on
    After downloading a 'windows 8 ISO' from a torrent and burning it on a DVD, it failed to boot from it.
    My Bit Defender antivirus found that the 'setup.exe' was infected with a trojan and deleted it, the rest of installation files are okay and I don't want to download entire windows 8 installation just for missing 8 kb setup file. Please help.

    Hi, welcome.

    Are you kidding or trolling?

    If not, then delete that immediately and re-download the .iso from Microsoft's server. Believe me, it's for your own good.

    You're joking Imran? You have pirated copy of Windows and want help? This is not a pirate site my friend.
