Windows 7 saves its installation date. It can be viewed with

cmd /k systeminfo | find "Original Install Date"

in the command prompt. How can I change the saved value to a different day?

Do you intend to rotate(extend) your Trial version for some more time? – uDaY Apr 4 '12 at 17:01
No I don't. I just wanna change the install date =). – Damieh Apr 4 '12 at 18:04
Of course I have. My window's legit if that's why you're asking. – Damieh Dec 11 '13 at 19:51

The install date is stored in the registry value as UNIX time (32-bit value containing the number of seconds since 1/1/1970)

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\InstallDate
