Antivirus detection on program activators

Hi everyone,

Why does antivirus detect programs activators (kmspico, photoshop activator and so on) as viruses?

I have done a brief research and none of this programs open ports nor close them, the modify the program files associated with them, let's say I'm activating photoshop this program will only modify files within photoshop instalation and some registry associated with the program.

Then why does antivirus mark this as a virus?

EDIT 1: new to this netsec theme and also English is not my first language.
