... But probably isn't

Why would you want to change the serial?

to get windows updates

just buy a copy of windows and the updates will work fine.:-)

Does not compute. Please expand + serial changer.

Ah, I see. I didn't know that there was such a thing.

I will keep an eye on this thread, I might learn something. :-)

There's nothing illegal per se about a serial number changer. It's like many things, including file sharing - it depends what use you put it to.

I've used a serial number changer a number of times, in order to easily convert systems with pirate copies of XP to legitimate copies.

I've also found it very useful when setting up a few identical systems, to clone the Hard Drives, then rectify all the serial numbers to the legitimate ones. Saves hours.

However in this case, because of the reason given for needing it, I decline to provide a link.
