Default Needs help to solve an unsuccessful attempt on trial period-tricking

I'm a real noob at tricking programs and such, so - in my childish believes of my brightness - I came up with the idea to set my system clock forwards 2 years when I installed a 15 days trial version of CleanMyPC Registry Cleaner in order to get a 2 years and 15 days trial period. But programs nowadays are smarter than before so when I set the clock back it recognized it as an attempt to trick the program.

While messing with the Registry is a bit dangerous, I think it's the best to keep the system clock accurate when I'm going to clean up the Registry (right?), but then the Registry Cleaner doesn't work. Doesn't matter if I uninstall the program and reinstall it, it still knows that I installed it in year 2008 the first time :S

What should I do?

Thanks in advance
