The LogMeIn Rescue service from https://secure.logmeinrescue.com/HelpDesk/CreateTrial.aspx is a very nice browser-based application that allows you to send an invitation to an online friend that needs help.

The downside is that it is expensive and only has a 14-day trial period. I just want to use the applicatin to help assist a friend from time to time, so $1,188 for 12 months service is kind of stiff...

I've been going through the registry, trying to remove traces of the application, - but I'm obviously missing something.

It would be great with some expertise help on this one.

Enjoy :thumbsup:

You could always try Uninstall Plus! It is a program that is available on a trial basis HERE. I use it regularly and like it. Not only will it start a specific program's uninstaller, but then it will search the registry for any traces of the deleted program. Of course, it may not work right as you have already uninstalled some of it. Don't know for sure, but I think it is worth a shot.

Oh, and welcome to Bleeping Computer! :thumbsup:

Trying to work around the trial period is a violation of the terms and conditions under which its use was granted.

https://secure.logmeinrescue.com/Purchase/t...ns_testuse.html

Even though you want to use this application to help a friend, BC cannot condone any discussion of what consitututes an attempt to violate software copywrite. The Forum rules are quite clear on this point:
" No subject matter will be allowed whose purpose is to defeat existing copyright or security measures. If a user persists and/or the activity is obviously illegal the staff reserves the right to remove such content and/or ban the user."

I am sure you can find another means, or application to use, to help your friend.


This topic is therefore closed.

Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.

I think I misread your intentions. I thought you were trying to remove the program from your computer. But upon rereading I see you want to hack the software. Sorry, no help here.

Note to self: Do a better job reading headers!

Just a suggestion. You could install RealVNC on both computers and use this to help your buddy.This program is downloaded free at www.realvnc.com and is easy to install.

To make to simple make sure your buddy is not connected to a router (go directly from the modem or if he uses dialup directely into the phone jack). Then all he has to do is do the classic next, next, next, next, then about 90% done the installation a window will pop up. Set a click on set password and set a password then click ok and the installation finishes and click finish. Get your buddys ip adress, go to www.whatismyip.com and his password then make sure the server is turned on his computer and go to the service program type in his ip and password and your connected.
