Extend Windows Vista Trial to 120 Days

Windows Vista is the first windows operating system to let you use a trial version for 30 days before buying. It's a really great move for Microsoft, especially in light of how little benefit you get from upgrading to Vista in the first place. There's a soon to be well known trick that can extend the trial period up to 120 days.

If you right-click on the computer icon on the start menu, you'll see the basic system information window, and you'll also see the amount of days you have left to activate:

Looks like I only have 12 days left… or do I?

If you are not locked out of your computer
Open up an administrative mode command prompt by typing in cmd into the start menu search box, and then hit the shortcut Ctrl+Shift+Enter to launch in administrative mode.

Now run this command from the prompt:

slmgr -rearm

It will take a little while, but eventually a dialog will pop up telling you to reboot. Do so, and you'll see that the activation period has been reset to 30 days.

Note that if you want to get a full 120 days out of this tip that you need to use this command on day 29 or 30 of your trial mode. You can only use this command 3 times before Microsoft smacks you down.

If you are already locked out (Reduced Functionality Mode)

You can still reactivate Vista if you have more resets left. If you've already used up all 3, then you are out of luck, but if not, you can follow these steps to unlock your computer again.

  • First, Open up Internet Explorer, and type C:\ into the address bar. You'll be prompted for UAC.
  • Now type in C:\Windows\System32\ into the address bar, and find the cmd.exe executable. Right-click it and choose "Run as Administrator".
  • Now use the same method as above (slmgr -rearm).
  • You should see the message saying that the computer is rearmed. You'll probably want to restart the computer at this point.

Getting a Trial Copy of Windows Vista

Windows Vista is the first Microsoft operating system to let you have a trial period. One of the questions that I get asked constantly is "Where do I get a copy of Vista?". This answer is less obvious.

If you have an MSDN license, you can download it from there and run it in trial mode. Most people don't have MSDN, however.

If you know somebody that has a copy of Vista, you can borrow the CD and use it to install in trial mode. As long as you aren't trying to use their serial number, there shouldn't be a problem with this.

There are various "other" ways to get a copy of the Vista CD. If you don't know what I mean, you should ask the person that everybody knows has a huge collection of downloaded content. I suspect they can hook you up, but remember it's just a trial copy. I don't advocate piracy.

Alternatively, you could buy a copy.

Addressing the 1 Year Activation Patch

There's been a debate about a 1 year activation hack that can allow you to run Windows Vista for up to 1 year without activating. As far as I can tell, this is completely bogus, and shouldn't even be attempted. Honestly, it's best to just buy a new computer with Vista already installed.

Addressing the "TimerStop" hack
There is a hack that will allow you to run Windows Vista forever without registering. This hack is obviously illegal, unsupported by Microsoft, and likely to break with future patches to Vista. I have verified that this works with some friends. Although I have not personally used it, I do not believe it should be used, and I would advise strongly against doing so.

Gmail gets Google Goggles


Google has adapted its free email service to help those letting loose after a few evening cocktails or succumbing to lovelorn mom

ents from firing off messages they might regret in the morning.

Mail Goggles software comes to life after dark and on weekends, when altered states of mind are more probable, and requires that five simple math problems be answered correctly in less than a minute in order to send a Gmail missive.

"Sometimes I send messages I shouldn't send," Gmail engineer Jon Perlow wrote Monday in a website posting announcing the optional new feature.

"Like the time I told that girl I had a crush on her over text message. Or the time I sent that late night email to my ex-girlfriend that we should get back together."

Gmail users can adjust their email settings to activate the Goggles feature and dictate the times it is active.

"It will check that you're really sure you want to send that late night Friday email," Perlow wrote.

"And what better way to check than by making you solve a few simple math problems after you click send to verify you're in the right state of mind?"

Gmail adds To-do list


Often forget important to-dos? Need help? Google Inc is testing a new Gmail tool designed to help users keep a better track of their tasks daily.

The company has announced a new tool called Tasks that is designed to help Gmail users create their daily to-do list. Tasks sits in the same kind of Window as chats, so it visible while users read e-mail, use the search function or do other tasks, Google's Task Team said in a Gmail Blog post.

The feature, which is coming out of Google Labs, is still in the testing phase, according to a Google spokesman.

To enable Tasks, go to Settings, click the Labs tab (or just click here if you're signed in). Select "Enable" next to "Tasks" and then click "Save Changes" at the bottom. Then, after Gmail refreshes, on the left under the "Contacts" link, you'll see a "Tasks" link. Just click it to get started.

To enter a new task, users just need to click in an empty part of their list and start typing. No buttons to click and it's saved automatically. Hit Return and there's a new task right there.

Gmail users can also easily convert emails into tasks: select one or more messages and go to More Actions > Add to Tasks. (Or turn on keyboard shortcuts and use + t.)

However, there is no time frame for the new feature to be officially added (if at all) to Gmail.

Compose Gmail in Hindi, Malayalam, Tamil, Kannada and Telugu


You would have already used Google Indic Transliteration or Transliteration Bots. Now Google has launched Google Indic Language Transliteration feature in Gmail compose window, which enables you to select Malayalam, Hindi, Tamil, Kannada or Telugu from the compose box menu and start type in English.

When you compose a new mail in Gmail, you should now see an icon with an Indic character. This feature is enabled by default for Gmail users in India. If you do not see this function enabled by default, you will need to go the “Settings” page and enable this option in the “Language” section.

When you click the Indian languages icon, you can type words the way they sound in English and Gmail will automatically convert the word to its Indian local language equivalent. You can select the language of your choice from the drop-down list next to the icon.

Google New Gtalk with Google Labs


Yesterday, Google released a lab edition of Google Talk. Essentially, it’s a desktop version of the Google Talk gadget that can be added to your website.

What’s New?

Tabs, emoticons, group chat, and desktop notifications for:

  • Gmail
  • Google Calendar (with snooze option)
  • Orkut

google talk lab editionOf course there’s more, which they refrain from mentioning, but what I don’t see is support for voice and file transfer that the original desktop client supports. It also doesn’t sport the AIM integration that seems to only be found in the web versions, most notably within the Gmail chat client.

Why Isn’t This In The Desktop Version?

What I don’t understand is why Google saw the need to make another version of the Google Talk client instead of integrating this stuff into the desktop client?! When is the last time that thing had an upgrade anyway? Don’t you think it’s about time to merge your clients instead of spending your 20% time over there creating new versions of Google Talk, Google?!

But if are a regular Google Talk user then please wait before installing this labs edition since it misses some important features like voice calling and file transfer.
