I've just run that out of interest, alan227.

It gives a key that bears little resemblence to my real one!

VOG I have never run that program I just heard about it, so I decided to try it and as you say the key that it generated bears no resemblence to the real one.
As Fruit Bat /\0/\ says use Everest home edition then open up the operating system information and it is under operating key.

(and it is under operating key.)
That should read under product key.

Hi, as a matter of interest I too had a look - mine is reported accurately - but the link above does state that the key might not be correct if your version is OEM. So VoG™ I guess yours is OEM :-))

Yep, Everest works a treat.

No, not OEM.

Not surprised, that's exactly what I thought. Cheers.
