Registration

Why should I register?

First, because PE Corrector is not a freeware. It is a trial product and protected by international laws. You may use it during the evaluation period (30 days); after that, you either have to register, or stop using it. Second, the unregistered (evaluation) version has some limitations. In addition, only registered users get the complete technical support (by e-mail). Finally, by registering the software, you provide us with the resources and incentive to support the software with updates and to develop additional quality software products in the future.

Can I get a free registration?

Yes, you can. Just help us. Please look at the localizations page for details.

How do I register?

Simple. Just visit our registration page. You have to have a valid credit card for the registration. After you'll register, we'll send you the key which will remove all limitations. In addition, you can register by fax, phone or postal mail. Please visit http://www.gigamindsystems.com/pec/order.php for details.

Yes, your registration will work with all minor updates of the program. Also you will get significant discounts to major product updates.

Back to top

I've seen a crack or serial number for PE Corrector in the Internet. Can I apply it?

You can. Please note, however, that this will violate the license agreement and strictly prohibited by international laws. Also, do it on your own risk: "cracked" program will not work as it should -- we have built-in some protection routines into the program. Your computer will not crash (PE Corrector doesn't run any desructing routines, even if it detects that it has been cracked), but don't ask us why something goes wrong after such cracking... Moreover, you will not get any technical support for the cracked program.

By the way, some of such cracks contains viruses or trojans, and running such crack may result corrupting your data.

As for the "free" serial numbers... We would like to assure registered users and evaluators, and warn others, that we have taken some steps to ensure that unauthorized registration numbers in circulation will not work. So please don't disturb us if you've entered one of those numbers and cannot understand why do you have any troubles now. There is only one source of valid serial numbers: the authors of PE Corrector - GigaMind Systems. All other numbers are invalid - use them on your own risk.

The registration is not very expensive. You may loose much more if you'll use the crack or invalid serial number. We hope you prefer to get a valid registration.
