Default VAG-COM came in Finally

OK, here it is.. this nice little package with like 40 million stamps all over the box from multiple country all the way from Hong Kong. I was a little skepticle at first due to everyone earlier this month when i placed a bid on it on ebay that i was buying something that most likely was not the real thing or just garbage or what not. So i open the box and there is this bright blue cable with 4 CD's with 2 labeled VW and 2 labeled Audi so i pul them out and check out the CD's on my laptop and admire how there was an actual folder with 5 different KEY_GEN's and then there was 3 different VAG-Com Crack zipped files and an No-CD crack zipped up. So i unzip everything already feeling bad because i felt like someone just were selling the cable and the shareware software. Well i go thru all the read files and figure out how to install it and i go thru and install the other cd's for audi on my laptop and then scanned it all for viruses.. well came back clean and then i proceeded to finish installing it after finding out the first keygen i unzipped gave me an unusable key and all. Well i go out this morning and i plug it into the car and i run the program and wow does this program look so dang complicated. The Vag-Scope program alone blew my mind away as i was sitting there with the car idling. But i was just curious is there a way to figure out if this is an actual real copy basicly hacked or is there a way of telling if this is an actual shareware version??? Sorry for anyone i offend with this but i just want to make sure because i have a lot of studying to do to understand and figure out how to use this program and also if this is indeed a hacked version i want to apolagize and actually look into purchasing an actual license to use this to help support it as much as i can. I was under the impression this was going to just be an plug in code reader basicly unless i bought the software later on to actual do other things with the cable.

Well, you seem to have a pirate copy.
The shareware and full version are the same thing in that once you install it, it can be either, the extra features are activated by...
a) entering the activation code
or
b) having a genuine lead with built-in hardware key

When you open it and click the bottom left button on the main screen what comes up?
