The real answer to both questions is NO

You can play games that will stop your 9-old kid sister or delay your 91-old grand-uncle, but you can't seriously achieve what you want.

Moral: never put value in the software.

Basically you can create an expiration like this

#include <Date.au3>

$_Key = "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\ProgName"
$_Value = RegRead ( $_Key, "FirstInstallDate" )
ConsoleWrite ( "$_Value : " & $_Value & @Crlf )
If $_Value = '' Then 
    RegWrite ( "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\ProgName", "FirstInstallDate", "REG_SZ", _NowCalc ( ) )
Else
    $iDateCalc = _DateDiff ( 'd', $_Value, _NowCalc ( ) )
    MsgBox ( 4096, "", "Number of days since first install: " & $iDateCalc )
EndIf

At the first install a registry key is wrote with the install date

and at the next executions you can compare the number of days you want limit ! Posted Image

In that case, heres a freebie garden variety password dealy which changes each month, and are stored i9n the script.

Global $aPass[13] = [12, "password1", "password2", "password3", "password4", "password5", _
        "password6", "password7", "password8", "password9", "password10", "password11", "password12"]

$sPass = $aPass[@MON]

$sUserPass = InputBox("Title", "Enter password:")

If $sPass == $sUserPass Then
    MsgBox(0, "", "Yay !")
    ;script start
Else
    MsgBox(0, "", "Boooo !")
    Exit
EndIf

@motormad,

Don't believe I'm harsh with you. I'm just taking the word secure seriously, or at least at its face meaning/value. Securing something (anything) has to be a balance betwen he money/time you invest in protecting it and the money/time needed to break/steal it. So if your intended audience is 9- or 91-old (no pun intended against elders) then half-backed tricks may certainly be enough for you.

Background: I've spent much time in the formal methods domain where you build mathematical models of the system studied. When a formal model exists, you can _prove_ (in the mathematical sense) things about its behavior/correctness. In this domain, secure means secure against any feasible attack, always or never mean no exception at all, ...
