    Trial Progs

    I was just curious.........

    When a trial program's time limit runs out, how does it prevent the user from simply reinstalling it and starting over?

    Does it leave a registry key? If so, can you delete the registry key, in effect restarting the time limit?

    THere has to be a way........
    It\'s 106 miles to Chicago, we\'ve got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it\'s dark and we\'re wearing sunglasses.

    Hit it!

    Well just by altering the date and month, or year backwards about 2 months or so also enables you to use it again.I think it is defenitely embedded in the registry,and if you go to regedit and do a search on the software in question it would take you there more or less.But to see exactly where I am not sure
    Practise what you preach.
