How to extend Win7's trial to a full four months

In a nutshell: If you install Windows 7 and don't enter an installation key, the 30-day activation clock starts. To see how many days you have left, click Start, right-click Computer, and choose Properties. At the bottom of the dialog under Windows Activation, you'll see the number of days left in your trial period.

When that number gets perilously close to zero, you can extend the free period another 30 days via the following steps:

Control your Time Zone from a Command Prompt in Windows 7

Windows 7 includes tzutil.exe, which is a command line utility that lets you set or change
the time zone or get details on the current time zone.

To change the time zone, use the /s command.
For example, tzutil /s "universal standard time".

To display the current time zone, use the /g command.
For example, tzutil /g.

To get a list of all available time zones, use the /l command.
For example, tzutil /l.
