I once downloaded this program that showed me what my serial number was. I think it was the one that Warez Monster mentioned above.

It could either be that or Magic Jelly Bean. I have used that before when i was going to format and install but i lost my CD Key and that helped me find it.

You know, Trotter welcomed me back with a PM, when I came back here yesterday in hope that this forum would be a bit better, but we still have good old -talldude123- who states the obvious, and already stated things (-sighs-).

Sounds like this has happened a lot, such as the time when I had to call for a new activation number on a legally purchased Compaq Presario 900 with XP Home.

Just because the activation number doesn't work doesn't mean you should go screaming "PIRATE PIRATE OMGX0RZ".

These things happen, you know.
