    I saw a link here some months ago that had a little utility that when run, will show the serial key of your installed copy of windows xp., can somebody direct me to this link.

    I have a purchased copy of xp home so I dont need this for a "bad" reason.

    thnx.

    right.... if you bought a copy then you have the CD-KEY on the folder that came in the box. So just why do you want to find the number :?:

    just in case....

    what folder? you buy an OEM copy and there's a sticker on the shrink wrap once you remove the shrink wrap you can easily lose the sticker. BTW: I think its stupid to put the sticker on your case because well anyone can do what a lot of kids do in compusa/staples/officemax/bestbuy/fryes/etc.. and thats write down serial numbers from stores and use them.. I saw two guys doing that at a LAN party last month.

    I didn't say you did lose it :no:

    that is exactly my point... you say you have the CD-KEY, so why do you want to crack windows to get it

    well congratulations every one...windows forum is now complete. first we had just key cracking/changing utilities...now we have key display utilities too.
    so i guess since it is all nice and dandy now...lets close the topic and wait for someone who needs a key display application so that we can show him/her this thread :rolleyes2
