Tip & How-To about HP Pavilion a1410n (ER890AA) PC Desktop

Change the Names of the Registered User and Company

When you install XP or when it comes factory-fresh on a PC, a username and company name are entered as the owner of the system. And that's the way it stays, like it or not. But a Registry hack will let you change both. Run the Registry Editor, go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion, and look for the values RegisteredOwner and RegisteredOrganization. Edit their value data to whatever username and company name you want.

factory settings?

Try this, if you are running xp i know it will work.

Start menu> All programs>Accessories>system tools>System restore.

This will restore your computer to factory and you won't loose any data. If you want to start fresh with nothing installed, install windows with the cd and choose fresh installation and follow the direcions.
