    By ID do you mean your network adaptor MAC address? If so, it'll depend on the PC/network card/OS, but it's not that hard. Google 'change MAC Address'; if you already know how to bring up the properties of your network card you may be able to change the MAC addr ther by hand anyway.If you don't mean MAC addr, please tell us what you do mean and maybe someone can help further.

    Is the program that expensive that you can not go ahead and buy it? Consider running it on a different PC or your Windows VPS if you have one. You can get one for a month for $20. Not sure how much that will help but its an idea.

    Thanks.

    This seems a bit like overkill. Why don't you look around for a hack or something? There is certainly no logic in continuing to pursue the renaming of your CPU.

    What are you running that should require that?

    And as others suggested, why not just run it from within a VPS. Just get VMware, and install a windows XP installation, and run it off that.

    I think you are out of touch with what is needed to continually run trial softwares. Good luck though.

    You can user TrialReset for keep evaluating your program before you buy it.

    definitely go for a vps, they're quite cheap nowadays and it beats the effort of trying to change your cpu id....and btw, if everything else fails and you think it's cheaper get a new cpu :d

    Put the software on a Virtual Machine make sure keep a snapshot of the virtual machine before installation.When the trial software expires use the snapshot you created before the installation of the trial software and change the mac address of the virtual machine.Install the trial software again and bingo get to use it again.
