Protection: Registration ( Lite version becomes Pro version once registration is accepted)
About: Power Defrag 2.00 runs in one of two modes.
*Power Defrag 2.00 Lite is a system tool designed to optimize the performance of the Windows 95, 98, 98 SE and ME Disk Defragmenter applet.
*Many people have experienced problems with the performance of the Windows 98 Disk Defragmenter, especially on slower and low memory machines. Some systems lock up entirely, while most take an inordinate amount of time to completely defragment the hard disk drive.
*Power Defrag elimPower Defrag 2.00 Lite is freeware and can be redistributed freely as long as it is neither modified nor sold.
*Power Defrag 2.00 Pro is licensed shareware which supports identical defrag functionality to Power Defrag 2.00 Lite, but includes additional functions which optimize the way in which the Microsoft Scandisk applet runs and some registry maintenance tools.inates these problems, and by some cunning system manipulation, ensures that your hard drive is defragmented optimally at your convenience.
Half a brain
OK, shall we begin? This is the first time I have tried reversing visual basic using Smartcheck, because I thought it would be super-difficult, but how wrong could I be? It was just soooooo easy! I don’t know if I was lucky, and my first target has lame protection or not, but here goes!!!!!!!!!
Firstly, we need to run smartcheck. Once we have done this, we need
to fire-up the target program, so open our target from within smartcheck
then select Program/Start and we should find that the powerdefrag has booted
up. Go to the registration box located in the Help menu. Right! The first
thing I noticed, was that the not-so-clever programmers already give you
the format of the correct serial number!;
Smartcheck doesn’t require us to set any breakpoints, so we just hit
the ok button! When we have seen the Bad Cracker message, our job is
already done! We just need to find where the real serial is. In smart check,
you should be looking at the following;
Pat yourself on the back, grab a beer and a cigar, and relax, safe in the knowledge that you just learnt something usefull!!
