    I have Windows 7. I want to set the time/clock back while installing a programme. Is it possible? Then I will reset it to the current time.

    When I google it, it mentions system restore, etc. I do not want that

    You can set your clock to whatever you want, do whatever you want, and then reset the clock to whatever you want.
    If you are doing so to beat some trial/time-limited software however, you will probably be wasting your time (pun intended).

    Yes, this is what I want to do!

    Is it possible to quickly explain me how on Windows 7?

    Thanks

    Right click the clock in the taskbar and choose "Adjust date/time" - not that hard really and why would anybody download an application to do something as simple as this. I bet there's a market for something that types for you - oh i forgot - there's fingers.

    RunAsDate injects custom time data into specific applications. One use for it is to stop trials from expiring.

    Glad you got what you wanted anyway ;)

    Or you could also change the date in your bios, but that is less convenient.
