Cool Reusing trial version

Hi all

iam having win xp installed in my system.

If a trial version of a particular software has expired, can i use this "system restore facility" in win xp to go back to a period, before that trial version was installed and whether can i reinstall and use that 'trial version software' again for that specific trial period (15 or 30 days).

Thus making a trail version package to be reused any number of times we need. Has anyone done that before.

Waiting for reply

You can reinstall the OS or delete the regestry files by typing "RegEdit" in run, but it doesn't always work and be careful not to delete the wrong ones

But a lot of software is far too expensive nowadays. You should buy the essential software however i use trials for things i hardly ever use (eg, converters).

agreed, it's a trial for a reason, it's a product that someone has made to sell, it's his/her business and what you are doing is stealing, just buy the software.
