Hi Edward,

So long as you are downloading and installing product trials from Adobe directly (a reliable source) you shouldn't need to worry about viruses.

Regarding software from an unreliable source (torrents, etc) - Microsoft has done a study which shows with cracked software posted to torrents "that 35 percent of the counterfeit software contained harmful code." Scary.
