Activation of software through SMS?

Recently I purchased Malayalam typing software (CD version) by name "LIPI MALAYALAM TYPING SOFTWARE" for Rs.999/ from a software developer/dealer from Trichur District in Kerala State. I was informed that 'UNLOCK ID" of this software will be sent to me by SMS (Offline mode) if I send the "LOCK ID" to the mobile number printed on the CD cover after installation of this software. During the installation of LIPI software, both Spyware Doctor and Eset smart security softwares installed in my system detected key logger Trojan embedded in the UNLOCK and LOCK ID component of this software. When I contacted the help desk of Lipi Malayalam typing software, he advised me to put the LIPI software in the white list of your antivirus and anti spyware softwares. Even after placing the above software in white list, Eset security software deleted completely the key logger component embedded in the LOCK and UNLOCK ID of this software. Now I am in a fix how to activate this software as this software can be activated only after sending the LOCK ID through SMS for getting the UNLOCK ID thereby enabling this software. Will any learned friends enlighten me about this key logger Trojan embedded in this Malayalam typing software? Will this key logger component damage my system if I install this software? Kindly help me in this regard as I am planning to move the court to recover the amount of Rs.999/ from this software developer as he is not willing to reimburse the price of this non-working software due to key logger component embedded in this software.
