  • No, it is not alright to "use pirated software".  Besides being illegal, pirated software often contains malware in the form of spyware and rootkits that will prevent the software from fuctioning as originally designed by the developers.  Once you purchase and install a genuine Windows operating system, you should have no problem updating it.
