Increase the trial period for your software if expired for free

If your software is on trial period and its trial is expired and you want to continue using it with out buying it, then try a simple trick to enhance the trial period of your software (You can watch the video too as an example at the end):
  1. Right click on the right corner of your screen where time is shown.
  2. Then Click on "Adjust Date and Time".
  3. Change the month to some earlier month or if its January change the year to previous year.
  4. Run the software.
  5. Trial period is increased.
Note: This trick may or may not work depending on the software you have. But you can use it with most of the softwares.

I had netflix on and when i turned it on it says needs to upgrade

It should be okay to upgrade Netflix. Did it provide you a link to upgrade the player? If you do not have access privileges to install software on the computer you are using, you will likely need to find the computer's administrator to have them update the software.

If you were using a temporary version of the Netflix player, it might require you to upgrade to a "non-demo" version because your demo period expired. Note: when you upgrade, however, it will likely require a paid membership. This is a common sales tactic.

Best wishes,

I'm trying to find the activation key for this game i got on my computer but having trouble finding it. anyway you could possibly get the activation key for it? its for a game called city car driving.

They often put trial versions/ demo software on new machines that have a time limit. The idea is to hook you on the product so you will go buy it when the time expires. Some software you can purchase online and they send you the activation code so it will work again. However then you don't have a copy of the game in the case of severe computer crash and it needs to be reinstalled. Some software has demo versions online you can download and they purchase the activation key. If you buy one that way make sure you save a copy of the software first and don't just run it.

My product key had expired!! What im going to do?!

You probably had a "free 30 day trial" version of some software,
and the trial-period has ended.
Follow the on-screen instructions to purchase a license-key for the software. When prompted, enter the license-key to 'un-expire' the software.

Unfortunately for you, YES it is true. Trial SW is for a limited period and once that expires you either purchase your COA or whatever you call it and continue using it or you stop using it.

Got second hand computer the games demos need a registration code where can i find them

Very likely, the registration code came with the system... Ask who you got it from if they have it, although most likely the codes expired. Probably better to get new games or reinstall the ones you have if you like them. Try:
