Lost Serial Number

  User-D1FEEA51-D1F5-4697-860C43559FCDE3F1 19:51 02 Jan 2007

Hi There Folks
It looks as though my PC is getting ready for a reinstallation of Windows98 SE.
Getting my necesary stuff together I am horrified to find that I have seriously mislaid the Serial Number for my Windows98 SE CD. (Genuine Original)

A friend of mine suggested that it may be lying hidden somewhere in the bowels of the Registry or other similar clandestine place.
Have any of you erudite boffins out there any ideas?

Grateful Thanks in advance from "Halfpenny"

Happy New Year to all and thanks to PC Advisor for this magnificent and most efficient Helpline Forum - various members have already got me out of quite a few problematical situations in the past.
Most humble thanks from a "Damsel in Distress" once again.
