Specs: xp pro version 5.1.2, core 2 duo/ o.99gb

I recently changed my system clock and received an error code CCB-F and even after I corrected my clock and re-installing the application the problem was not solved and after a registry scan this is the error message I get while I try to start the application"Your system clock appears to have been set back, possibly in an attempt to defeat the security system on this program. Please correct your system clock before trying to run this program again. If your clock is correct, please contact the author of this program for instructions on correcting this error (report code 4009,4009,3645).Help needed please.

What application did you install? Did you Google that error?

Did you try to extend a trial period by doing this? Naughty!
Make certain you corrected everything especially the year!

The program was "your uninstaller 2008" and I did not do it to extend my trial period bazzab for I already own a full version of the software, I did change my system clock just to see how another program worked when it happens and not to extend my trial period.

Did you try doing a registry clean before installing the second time? If not the key that is causing this will still be a valid entry, because you re-installed the program.
Try uninstalling the affected program, remove all remnants of it, you might need to set the computer to show hidden files to do this (Tools/View then check 'show hidden files and folders, you can do this if you open the 'My Computer' window). Run a good quality registry cleaning program to clear out registry remnants but be careful because some registry cleaners are fond of removing valid entries, causing other problems. After doing this try installing it again. If this fails, you may have to contact the vendors. If you don't want to tell them what you did, just tell them the CMOS battery died!

Thank you bazzab, I tried them all but nothing worked, but yes I agree that the issue is related to registry and locating that particular registry key is what is the testing task.However I guess that I've done it and am no more interested in the software as I've found a better one which is available as a freeware. Thank you all for your kind support and you specially bazzab. And my wishes for a very happy and a prosperous new year.

Thanks dinumaris, I hope that you too have a happy and prosperous new year :-)
Pleased that you found something better than what you had!
Too often software leaves behind so much trash when you uninstall it, most of it in the registry, but if you look hard enough you will find traces all over the place! This was I think, the problem with the software you were using.
