Default Changing product key?


Just wondering how i can change my product key for windows?

I had to format my pc and I didn't have my product key for my windows, so I had to use my brother's disk and key. I can't download windows updates.. etc

Now i've got my product key again, so I'm just wondering how I can change it, without having to reinstall windows.

Appreciate any help

Maybe RockXP can do it? Other than that i would say look thru the Microsoft Search site.

But most of those are related to VLK.

Winkeyfinder. It's included on a Hiren's BootCD (v9.3)...just google for that, burn the ISO you d/l, and then pop the disc into the drive. It's under the Recovery menu. Quite a neat little can even generate random passwords/backup and restore your activation file.
