    I recently downloaded a trial program, after about a week I unistalled it.
    Every time I switch on I get a message telling me that the trial time has expired. How can I get rid of this. I am operating windows XP on an E machine.

    If you have a restore point prior to the installation, apply it. No restore point? Search the registry for occurrences of the program name and delete them (DON'T DELETE HEX CLSIDs UNLESS YOU KNOW THAT THEY ARE NOT SYSTEM ENTITIES)

    Check inside the C:\PROGRAM FILES folder and delete its folder, if it's still there. After you uninstall some programs, they sometimes leave a folder behind.

    Download and install EasyCleaner 2.0.6.380(which was just recently updated) from here. After it's installed, run its "Unnecessary"(select "normal types" and "temp directories") and "Registry" functions and delete everything that it finds and displays. This free utility does a very good job of getting rid of junk files and invalid registry entries without "breaking" programs. I've used it successfully with 98SE, ME, and XP.
