so i just used the kms method or whatever its called of activating windows 8.1 on bootcamp on my mac due to the fact i couldnt find a legitimate key for a reasonable price, so this method was a last resort and i didnt do any research into the subject, which was a bad idea on my behalf. im a very worrisome and anxiety ridden person and i have a fear that my files will be accessed or data will be collected from my machine.
is there any chance of this happening? i have a gut feeling that this is unsafe, so may i also be linked to an uninstallation/removal guide for the kms thing and go back to unactivated windows?
my biggest worry is that if any malware happened to appear, itd spread to my mac as im running windows on mac using bootcamp. it isnt like a virtual machine, its an actual windows ISO installed and running so files from my mac can be transferred to windows, etc. my mac files are very important as well as irreplaceable so if my machine were to be permanently damaged that'd absolutely wreck me.
im currently physically sick worrying about any of this happening, could someone please confirm the potential dangers if there is any? and as earlier stated, id like a guide to remove the activation if possible.
apologies if this has already been addressed, im new here.
