Default Location of Software expiration dates

I am trying to determine the location of the expiration dates for any subscription software, e.g. Nortons, Webroot, etc.

Can anyone tell me where I can find this information. My guess was the registry...but I was not successful in finding this information.

Sometimes, it's on the main page as soon as you launch the program.

Under norton, look at the main screen, and click "subscription service"

Maybe my question was not clear. I need to know where Windows stores the subscription expiration date.

For what, in particular? These things are well-hidden and designed so that the average computer-geek can't go in and modify them to extend their subscriptions.
