windows 7I still remember when around a year ago I posted a nice trick on how to use Windows Vista for free for 120 days and rearm and extend the grace period automatically. If you think well the time elapsed between these two operating systems is quite tight! We haven’t got accustomed to Windows Vista yet, that here Windows 7 comes! Anyway, for those of you guys who are trying Windows 7 right now, here is a nice trick to extend its grace period from 30 to 120 days (please, say how good I am  since I am dropping the first bomb of 2009!).

Basically, this trick will teach you how to use Windows 7 without any key and how to extend its trial mode to 120 days. The whole point of this article is  use Windows 7 without any licence key.

  1. The first step to do is to check how many days Windows 7 is giving you before expiring. (default is 30 days).
  2. Click Start.
  3. Right-click on Computer and select Properties.
  4. The classic window, also available in Windows Vista should appear. This window gives you a lot of useful information about your computer such as: processor, memory, system-type etc.
  5. At the bottom of such a window, under Windows Activation you should be able to read how many days are left to activate Windows 7.
  6. OK, bear in your mind the number of days left and go to Command Prompt.
  7. To gain access to Command Prompt, click Start and in the Search box type Command Prompt and hit Enter.
  8. Right click on Command Prompt and click Run as Administrator.
  9. Type cd..
  10. Again type cd..
  11. Now to rearm you Windows 7 type slmgr -rearm
  12. A windows should now appear saying to you that the command was performed sucessufully.
  13. Go check again how many days are left and you should see that the counter is back to 30 days!
  14. You can use this trick till you reach the sum of  120 days.
