Recover that Windows XP Product Key (RockXP)

Thursday, October 27, 2005

If you are one of those people who get annoyed by the lag time in WindowsXP after a year or so of usage and are prone to wiping the system clean for a quick fresh start, RockXP is the application you need so you can use your original product key and skip the whole tiresome product activation that Microsuck has you go through when first running XP.
In a nutshell, after you have your XP installed, running RockXP will pull your product key and with that file (if you wish), or you can just take a note and scribble down that product key in case you lost it. I have used RockXP with good results and hey, it is free, so why not give it a try?

This is actually pretty nice. I ve had to retrieve the product key before, but I believe I just went through the registry. Here's another thing you might want to check out as well.

thanks for the link Chris. I usually use resource hacker for registry edits since I have fucked up my OS on more than one occasion.
