    How safe is it to download and use Windows Xp / Vista Pre-Activated Images from internet? Like there can be some spy software may be embedded in those images also. If so, can those kind of spy softwares be detected by anti-viruses ?

    When you are downloading Images I prefer to be from the original source i.e. MS and not through any other medium.

    Yeah you might get a patched copy which might have backdoor or root-kit pre-installed.
