Extend Windows Vista and 7 Trial Period from 30 Days to 360 Days

You have to use the same slmgr -rearm command in this method too.

So here is the step-by-step method:

1. Click on “Start button – All Programs – Accessories”. Right-click on “Command Prompt” and select “Run As Administrator“. If you are prompted to enter password, enter the password and continue. You can also open Command Prompt in Administrator mode by typing “cmd” in Startmenu Search box and press “Ctrl+Shift+Enter“.

2. Now provide following command:

slmgr -rearm

3. You’ll be prompted to restart Windows, restart it and the trial period will be reset to 30 days again.

4. You can use the same command 3 times. In this way you’ll be able to use Windows for 120 days without activation.

5. Now its time for the main trick. Type regedit in RUN dialog box and press Enter. Now goto:

For Windows Vista:

For Windows 7:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionSoftwareProtectionPlatform

6. In right-side pane, change value of SkipRearm to 1.

7. Now you’ll be able to use the slmgr -rearm command 8 more times. So you’ll get total 360 days for using Vista and 7 without activation:
