Checking for an Illegal software installed in a laptop

Hi, your advice please! Do I have to remove illegal software in my laptop before having it checked at Apple Service Center? I have a MacbookPro v2008 needing some battery replacement. However, I have one software application which I’ve got from my friend for free. The software is Final Cut. It does not come with a license, since it’s really expensive to purchase the real one. Are service centers checking computers, specifically laptops, for any illegal software, programs and applications installed? Or should I leave it as is, without worrying they will check on it, since it’s just a battery replacement?

Hello AVeryl,

You do not have to worry about that. A battery replacement will not affect any software that you have installed on your computer. In fact if your final cut software that you want to install were to be compromised, they it will not be the developers of the computer to compromise it but the people who developed that software.

So you just install your final cut, you do not need to worry about it being compromised by the contact center just because you are doing a battery replacement .

Although it is just a battery replacement, we are not sure if they will check your software installed in your computer. But just for a play safe, remove the software before you bring your laptop on the Apple Service Center. This is safer than to leave the software in your laptop. Actually you can reinstall the software after that. Just borrow the installer from your friend or if you have the copy, much better.

Another option is, since it is just a battery replacement, you can bring just the battery on the service center. They can actually check the battery if it is really the problem or in your computer terminal. All laptop has its own classifications and properties so you don’t need to worry about the fittings of your battery. This option is just to avoid their technical from checking the software installed in your computer.

It is better to play safe than to gamble. Remember, prevention is better than cure.
