Paint Shop Pro and Install (and install and install!!)

Occasional user of PSP.  Install trial program off promotional CDs etc, and aware of time limit to demo.  In older versions, could Remove Program and reinstall with fresh start date for trial.
Tried again with PSP 5 and now have wonderful message of "You are on Day 57 of 60" (even though I had thought it was a 30 day trial/
Appreciate that question is perhaps improper, but even with full remove, how can I remove the 'key' or signal that is telling PSP of any earlier install  and get a fresh start date?

Thanks for prompt reponse.  Can I take you up on your offer sooner rather than later?  Saw friend's PSP V4 some months ago which froze him out completely, possibly within 100 days or less.  One irritant with PSP of course is everyone merrily saves as PSP format (not JPG etc) and as best I can find out, nothing will open a *.psp file.
However, lead on Gungha Din!

The site I got mine is down or has moved, you can do a search for Paint Shop Pro 5 warez and should be able to find it.
I do have the file on my computer that I could send you in an e-mail if you want, if so then post your e-mail and I will send it to you

Many thanks and yes please

After all these years I've finally found something new!  Did a search on EE for warez and am reading some of the most ill-tempered mesaages I've ever seen here!  Great fun though

I'm on day 215 of my 30 day trial!  But on my other machine, trial ended after 390 days!

Upgrade to version 6 (which is out now for trial) and you should get some more free time!

rayt333 gave me an idea and I spent most of last night discovering the world of wonder that cannot speak its name (no -not the maladaise anglais) but the one issue that creates a firestorm on this Site.  Can't do charades on a computer, so you'll have to do a Sherlock Holmes and add the last letter of the alphabet to the second part of the word that makes computers run.  (I'm becoming as silly as the people on those sites!) It took 4 or 5 goes with different sites, but there really is a cxxxk for PSP and then found one for WinZip7 and I'm now lost in the underworld! (I need to reassure everyone that I'm not under the influence!) http://www.csonline.net/jwise/current/PC_PSP5.ZIP

(nb It took several different goes to find the one that worked - downloaded about 4 different version and not fully sure this is the exact one, but whichever it was I now have an unrestricted prog.)
One thing to do though is make sure it's for the same version (5.0, 5.01 etc) and you'll have to do a full reinstall of PSP including Animation (but not the samples and help files) It won't work without all the *.exe files in place to be patched.

Such an experience by the seat of  my pants getting PSP5.0 running undated, that I'll pause for breath!  (That's my code for admitting I've just - through the same sources- taken WinfaxPro9 and Winzip 7 off the calendar.  It's amazing what problems can be caused by timers!)
