    There was a promo about a week ago which gave away free keys for the product for 1 year. Only way to get another trial is either to reformat your OS or install Emsisoft in a VM.

    A couple of years ago, I also had trouble with it, lot's of shutdown / startup slowdown's. It's all fixed now.

    As Paul Lee already said, there was a promo. I think they will do another one, with Christmas. If you are a student(only if you are), you can get 50% off. Just send them a e-mail.

    I am afraid that reformatting will not help. It seems that Emsisoft goes by hardware identity.

    Contact Emsisoft via the support via the website (e-mail or form) and they should be able to help. I'm sure they will be kind enough to let you use another 30-day trial, or at-least a reduced time trial. You could also use a Virtual Machine if your system is good enough and if you know how to and trial it on there to test it out for awhile.

    Thanks your answers!
    I'll make contact with support, this is the most clear way i think.

    From what I know, they record the MAC address or serial number of the hard drive, but I may be wrong.

    EAM is mapped to machine ID, but the license (single machine) allows you 5 changes a day until the license is locked for 24h.
    Obviously, you have to un-license a machine before installing the license to another.
