Well, this one to me is complicated. I downloaded a trial version of a game off of msn games and it expired. I erased and deleted all files in connection with it and it still has hidden spyware files on my computer including how they would know I had expired. How can I get all of these off including how to use the trial version again if I wanted to without purchasing another program.
I have tried spybot and blacklight and still nothing.

Thanks

Might I be the first to say that what you're trying to do is illegal. You need to actually buy the program if you want to use it beyond the trial. What it does when you install it is it puts things in your Registry that say that the trial has been used on your computer before and that it will not work with the demo again unless you buy it.

Now then. What you're asking is the same thing as finding a illegal crack for the game or whatever and using that, because you're technically getting something for free.

It's not spyware at all.

What you're asking is something that the forum (as I'd imagine) strictly forbids.

Trial means trial. In no way does it include forever.
