How do I change the product key number on my PC?

  mikel1878 11:30 29 Apr 2006

I recently found that the my Windows XP Pro software is fake. I have bought a disk and key number and I don't know how to change the key number to register it. I don't really want to reinstall the program if I can avoid it, nor do I want to mess with the registry as I am not confident in doing that. Can you guys tell me how to change it? It IS a legal copy.

There is little point in tagging on a query at the end of an entirely unrelated subject - it will most likely be seen by very few.

Start a proper thread and you will get a faster response; you will also receive e-mails advising that there have been replies.
