Hey all!

I have a problem.

I just purchased a whole lot of hardware, and my upgrade will almost certainly require a windows reinstall...


Enter the problem:

I've lost my Win XP disk.

I could reinstall win XP with a buddies disc, but I dont know what my key is.

Is there any way I can extract my CD key from my computer, so that I can use it in my reinstall?

Thanks,
Matt

The Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder is a freeware utility that retrieves your Product Key (cd key) used to install windows from your registry. It has the options to copy the key to clipboard, save it to a text file, or print it for safekeeping. It works on Windows 95, 98, ME, NT4, 2000, XP, Server 2003, Office 97, and Office XP. This version is a quick update to make it work with Windows Server 2003.
