There are many types of viruses spreading on the Internet, and to eradicate some of them one needs to resort to dedicated removal tools. For instance, Cracklock is especially efficient when it comes to getting rid of the so-called “30th day” virus.
When installing Cracklock, users can choose to integrate the application within the shell extension of Windows or to add Cracklock to the PATH environment variable. Those who are not sure what exactly these settings refer to are advised to stick with the default configuration lest they mess up the software and make it faulty.
The interface of Cracklock is simple and user-friendly, and one simply needs to select the executable files that have been infected by the previously mentioned virus. Basically, users who can no longer access a certain shareware software that they have been using for the past 30 days can process it using Cracklock and regain access.
The app basically injects the selected executable with the date and time chosen by the user, be it a virtual date or the one corresponding to their current timezone.
On the other hand, it seems that the application has been successfully used by developers who wanted to make sure their software would not break down after the year 2000. Consequently, nowadays devs can rely on the same tool to ensure their products will function smoothly even in the year 10,000 without any issues.
In a nutshell, Cracklock can come in handy to programmers and common users alike, provided the latter have some skills regarding injecting software or detecting the “30th-day” virus. Beginners are advised to steer clear of this application because incorrectly modifying the time and date within some programs might result in crashes or unresponsive apps.
