FREE adobe Illustrator Question

I recently went on a taster course for Illustrator and found it quite handy and better for me to do labels to pass to the printers.
I have already downloaded a free version of CS suite but this doesnt have Illustrator on it.
Ive been googling free Illustrator downloads, BUT -
how do I know they are genuine and how do I know its not just a free trial?

unless it is from the maker or a trusted friend who knows what it is the old adage "beware of geeks bearing gifts" seems to be a place to start with a lot of freeware.

do adobe do a free trial version which then reverts to a home version with reduced fancy bits? (good job spell checker saved me Embarassed )

my ps cs3 is a bit old but has all the bits,it wasnt cheap but it probably is now ,however it does all i need it to and could do most things i could want to do,is it worth buying the original discs of an older version?mine is a cached download so i cant help with the discs.

Been loooking at ebay - there is tons of stuff, but Im unsure what I should be looking for. Its been CS4 I used for the taster session, and CS4 photoshop I have.
Dont know anything about CS3, dont know what cloud is....

dpack - can you link to something or give me a title that I could look for ?

PS EDIT WITH ANY DOWNLOADED SOFTWARE TIS ALWAYS WORTH LETTING THE ANTIVIRUS HAVE A QUICK LOOK AT IT IN THE SANDBOX BEFORE INSTALLING IT PROPERLY

Thanks - little message has popped up - publisher could not be verified. Do you want to run it?
This file does not have a valid digital signature that verifies its publisher.

Im running a full system scan with Norton - Im assuming this will pick up anything that shouldnt be there?
(Have left the little window open)

The full scan has completed. But now the little window with the message has gone and Ive searched programs and cant see it, so God Knows where its bloody gone now!

,norton was/is a bit ummm ,sloppy.

it should either still be in your download file or it might have saved to documents.before it would appear in programs it would need to be installed.

give me a little while i will download it and check it for unpleasant things.
