    Unhappy Trial version game

    hello,

    I downloaded a game that is a trial version and now I can not play it anymore because I finished the allowable number of games played for free. Can anyone tell me how to clean all this game files from my computer (the registery and everything) so I can install it again and play???

    Thank you!!

    Heh.. how about buying it?

    I am sure at least one person worked really hard on it for awhile if you enjoy playing it, and likely, it was more than a one person job.

    try this (i am not sure it will work - never tried it):
    - install it on another computer.
    - copy all the installed files (take the whole folder) onto a CD-R.
    - copy it onto the other computer (in a folder that is nowhere near where you installed it at first).

    like i said, it might not work...

    Smart programs like that hide a registry key, or a file somewhere in a folder which isn't likely to be deleted (eg. Windows) others, well, they'll hide the key in the programs folder.

    Although, you could purchase the program.

    Thank you people for responding but a little search and messing with one file fixed the problem!

    I would buy it if I could but no credit card
