Hacking a program Answered

Is there a way to remove the trial period from a program, say its gonna expire in 30 days, delete that piece of memory so it forgets and you have it forever? (photo courtesty of whatsisface)

Hello, it would be illegal to post how. Plus it is rather ironic that you post a picture with "curtesty of" while wanting to violate someone else's copyright.

If for someone elses program: For most things are free alternatives available these days. To secure a software: Impossible. If everything fails, people will just distribute a whole copy of the executable or such instead of keys. The only method that seems to be crack proof is to distribute software with a hardware key that has a unique number (and even then it is possible to hack the program).

Ack, just get a keygen or serial# I dunno, but I think the "you have used this for 30 days" is in the registry... though where I don't know. (start>run>regedit.exe)

Key-Gens are like a pain lol.... You have to get a good one and not a bogus one.

if the keygen came with the torrent, then it will work (download the trial and keygen files all together, and they should work) if you have Vista, make sure you run everything in admin, or a bunch of things won't work!

. Uninstall the app, run a good registry/system cleaner (eg, CCleaner), re-install the app.
