My friend is getting win 7 from a torrent and i heard somewhere that it reduces your performance as it prevents some of your cores from working and dose something with your ram can anyone confirm this or is it just pure nonense to stop people from getting it free?
P.s he's using the 64bit version

Well it could, one of the big problems with torrenting OS's is that you don't know who could of been playing with the files before you got it. It could even be infested with malicous code. So as always, buy Windows.
There are legitimate iso files on the internet provided by Microsoft themselves, no need for torrent. He'll have to purchase a key from Microsoft to legally use them.
