In my applications I use a combination of  installation date, day counter and last access date, so when I read the string if I find a last access date > of system date time it means that the system time was altered, and that stops the application, otherwise I simply update the last access date and the counter, 'til it don't exceed

And if someone makes copy of your date information in registry today- when app is working regulary. An then after trial time is over, turne date back on today and pastes the old date information.

Example date today is 30.12.12.
After encryption it becomes 123456.


After some time when tril will be over
Can he write 123456 in regystry and set system date to 30.12.12 and make app run?

How could he find this value and copy it if you store it in HKeyClassesRoot using a guid as key? I do so to hide it.

I repeat, you could use it as key name, not key value, where to store your values, but you could use also a file somewhere in the same way.

Anyway, if you are looking for something that should be not ever cracked you need some hardware key, as any coded program could be cracked.

Finally, there are lot of combinations that you can use just from your mind and concatenate them into one encrypted string, like for example the last access time of a specified file
