4. Using a Software Installation Monitor

This method may not seem that obvious at first, but actually can work quite well in many circumstances. The theory is simple in that you use a standard piece of installation monitor software which watches the files & registry entries that a program creates when it installs, & then can completely uninstall the software including everything that doesn’t get removed by the standard uninstaller. This often has the effect of also removing registry entries shareware might leave behind to lớn watch its trial expiry status.

As an example, this can be achieved for the Internet Download Manager shareware program when its 30 day trial expires. We happen to know that the trial status of IDM is stored in the registry key “HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareClassesCLSID7999AC3-058B-40BF-984F-69EB1E554CA7”, but IDM doesn’t remove this key when you uninstall through its own uninstaller và the time/date trick doesn’t work. Therefore once the trial period expires, the information remains on your computer & it will stay expired even if you re-install the program again in future.


To demonstrate, we installed Comovày Programs Manager which is one of the better installation monitor’s around, and let it automatically monitor the install of IDM. Then once the trial period for IDM has expired, we simply select it for a “Complete Uninstall” in Comodo Programs Manager. After the standard uninstaller has finished, Programs Manager will show the extra files & registry entries that have sầu been left behind. Expvà the Registry tree và looking at the keys, we can see the IDM key which controls the trial period status is listed for removal. Continue the removal and if you re-install Internet Download Manager, its trial status will be reset khổng lồ 30 days.


This method is obviously not foolproof but if you can install the trial software for the first time after installing the installation monitor, & the trial information is kept in the registry or a data file, one of these programs has a chance of picking it up & removing it which will remix the trial period.

5. Registry Trash Keys Finder

This might be a better solution these days because it is up-to-date. Unlike the Trial-Rephối program which was last updated more than 2 years ago, it may not work on shareware that uses a newer version protector. Although Registry Trash Keys Finder is free, there are some limitations where some of the protection keys are not shown. The full version of Registry Trash Keys Finder is only available after donating to lớn the author of this tool & it removes the limit.


As you can see at the screenshot above sầu, there are 3 registry keys that shows FREEWARE-VERSION-CAN’T-SHOW-THIS-KEY for the Armadillo protector which cannot be seen nor deleted. We wanted to test the full version so badly that we donated to lớn get it. From the “what’s new” area, we read that they’ve sầu recently added a search routine for the lakiểm tra Alawar.com games keys so we decided to put Alawar games to lớn the chạy thử.

We downloaded a game from Alawar called Sticky Linky and played the whole không lấy phí 60 minutes. Once the 60 minutes không lấy phí play time is up, it shows 0 minutes game time left and we can no longer play the game until we purchase the game.


We ran Registry Trash Keys Finder full version và Alawar came up in the tìm kiếm results.
