Lost XP CD Key?

(DISCLAIMER) This is not a method for circumventing Microsoft copyright protection. It IS however, a way to save the keys you already have a legal right to own and use.

Have you ever wanted to reinstall Windows, but couldn't remember where you left your CD package and CD key?

In older versions of windows we could find it easily like this.

Click Start, Run then type regedit
Navigate to:
The number is listed under ProductId

BUT in Windows XP we can't actually read that number since it is encrypted to keep unscrupulous people from stealing our registration information.

So here is the trick to accessing the CD key installed on your PC.
Download Magical Jellybean Keyfinder, just click the name that's underlined, this opens a new window, you then click (Direct Link) save the zipped file and extract it with winzip or the windows archive tool.
Open the folder and click keyfinder.exe.

NOW you not only have your XP CD key, but all other Microsoft CD keys installed on your PC.
Copy and paste all of them to notepad and print a hard copy.
Just to be safe, and in case you have decided to reinstall XP, and the other Microsoft products listed, you should also download and run CSharp-DriverBackup.exe to save all of your drivers. Burn those to a CD as well as a copy of your keys, and cruise the net worry free, knowing that YOU can easily restore your OWN PC if a disaster occurs.

Knowledge is power eh?

What is the product key of microsoft office 2007?

A product key is the license for the software product (Microsoft office 2007) that validates you purchased the software and did not pirate a copy. If someone gave you a copy of this software it was probably registered to whom ever bought it legally.

Download and install windows xp prof, hardware lenovo E5300 A4086

There are many places online to download Windows XP

but none of them are legal. Windows XP is not

distributed online so there is no legitimate way

to download Windows XP, even from Microsoft.

No matter where you find it, any XP download you

come across online is illegal. The only legal

course of action when you need a copy of Windows

XP is to actually buy a new copy of Windows XP.

It's that simple.

It's important to note as well that even if you

did download Windows XP, what you would get is an

image of the Windows XP Setup CD. For example, you

would probably download an ISO file like

windows-xp-pro.iso, or something like that. You

would then burn that ISO image to a CD that you

would then use to install Windows XP.

In many ways, however, what you actually pay for

when you legally purchase a copy of Windows XP is

the product key (sometimes referred to as a CD key

or key code, or incorrectly as the serial number).

This unique number is required during an

installation of Windows XP. So even if you did

download Windows XP, you would still need a valid

XP product key to install and use Windows.

Here iam providing the link to buy Windows Xp pro

Hope this will help you

I downloaded the microsoft office word 2003 on to my computer online, and now it's asking for the product key. Don't have this information. Need it ASAP!!!!

Generally, if you downloaded this online directly from Microsoft, this would be the "Office Test Drive" and they would have e-mailed you a Product Key when you register for the test drive. however since it is Office 2003 it most likely (I'd stake my career on it) a pirated copy you got off of P2P sharing. In which case the only option you legally have is to go through the "activation" process and purchase a product key when it fails... or get an illegal key generator. I usually do not recommend and cannot oblige to use pirated software, as you will often be infected by malware that can stow away in the packages.

I lose my Hp530 products key

The product key for Vista is normally on a sticker on the side of the machine if it was supplied pre-loaded, or on the certificate of authenticity if you bought Vista separately. Microsoft do not issue duplicate product keys - if you've lost it, and you need to reinstall, your only legal solution is to buy another license and another key.
