No offense, but what is your obsession with reformat, reformat,
reformat, etc. I don't want to sound harsh, but when you get on the
list saying stuff like that it makes you sound like a complete
computer idiot. As a matter of fact reformatting is not the only way
to reset the timed trials, and if you knew half the things you claim
too you would know that by now.
For one thing if you know you are going to do this in advance you can
create a Windows restore point which will back up the registry before
it gets modified. So when the trial ends simply go into Windows
restore and restore your old registry. That's the simplist fix for the
You can also simply export the registry before installing, and if you
want to run the trial again, uninstall the demo, import your saved
registry, and reinstall it. Again not a big problem if you plan ahead.
If someone didn't prepare in advance it can still be fixed without
resorting to a reinstall. Someone with the skills such as myself can
open the registry locate the keys that caused the timed trial to
expire, and blow them away. Reinstall the game and as good as new.
This method isn't recommended for the average computer user but anyone
with an ounce of programming knowledge who has worked with the
registry before can certainly do it.
