trial programs - renew

  ArsenalFC 17:01 11 Jul 2006

Is there a method of totally uninstalling a `trial' program from a computer so that I can re-install the program and get another month (or whatever) free use?

Yes, reformat the hard drive.

LOL....... Don't ...... please don't, because if you do ArsenalFC is going to be back asking what to do next time.

ArsenalFC: if you like it then buy it, is the general idea of these trial programs.

Er . . . I don't think I will reformat! I just want an easy way of using a program for a little longer before buying

As ventanas has said reformatting the drive would work, add/remove programs won't as I'm sure you realise. If you like the program and its a reasonable amount to purchase why not buy it. After all whoever created the program must have spent time on it and deserves to get paid.

Otherwise look for a freeware program that does something similar.

How long have you had this *TRIAL* program?
