Theres a command you can use to re-arm the 30 day trial in order to get up to 120 days.

I realise this fix has come a little late for you but i'll post anyway, it may help other users.

First, type in cmd.exe from your windows search box and open it up.

Net ensure that the command line is showing the following path:


It should point to the correct directory by default but just in case it hasnt type in:

cd c:\Windows\System32\ then <return>

Next you need to access the command in this folder to re-arm the 30 day limitation, so type in:

cscript slmgr.vbs -rearm <return>

Then restart and you will have another 30 days. This script can be used up to a maximum of 120 days :D

How to crack licence key

Eset NOD32 only provides a 30 day trial. You will have to buy the product to extend the validity.

If you are looking for a free alternative, AVAST, Avira, AVG all have free versions with realtime protecton. My personal favorite is Malware bytes. However, the free version does not include Real time pretection. So, you will have to run scans periodically.

And, if you are looking for help to "crack the licence key" you are on the wrong forum.

Extend vista trial period

open command prompt and type<br />slmgr -rearm<br /><br />It will take a little while, but eventually a dialog will pop up telling you to reboot. Do so, and you'll see that the activation period has been reset to 30 days.<br /> <img src="image%7B0%7D%5B2%5D1.png" /> Note that if you want to get a full 120 days out of this tip that you need to use this command on day 29 or 30 of your trial mode. You can only use this command 3 times before Microsoft smacks you down.<br /><br />

I need the free permenent product key for my laptop type aspier 4736g,because always i open my microsoft word exel it request

Your computer probably came with a "30-day-free-trial" version of Microsoft Excel. So, after the 30 days, you have to PURCHASE a permanent product-key, if you want to keep using the software.

Remember, you clicked "I agree" the first time that you opened Excel, namely agreeing to accept the 30-day trial-period.

Or, uninstall Microsoft Office, and download *FREE* office-productivity software from
This software can read/write your existing Excel documents.
