Default Product Key

I lost my product key for Windows XP professional and was told to use Keyfinder at http://www.product-key.com
Has anyone ever used this program before? Does it work?

Doubt it but I don't care it gave me a free XP install key. It said I used a different XP CD than I actually did when I installed XP. YAY!

meh, legal or not, as long as it feels right, do it :P especially on places such as software.. when you own the product but just lost the CD key, at least i wouldn't look through EULA to find whether i can use some other sources..

anyhow, even if you do, Microsoft wouldnt' crack down on you, as i'm pretty sure unless your really rich, they are not ganna get much from you by suing..

I don't know why it just gave me a different serial key than the one I actually have can't say if it's real or not regardless I can get free serial keys straight from Microsoft that are ligit so I will not use this one.
