Anyone know how to change the registered to and company name on a Win 2000 box? I can't figure it out. Thanks.

Probably in the Registry. Don't think there's any other way, except for running the full repair from the CD... or reinstalling!

I figured it might be in the registry somewhere. Just need to figure out the key. Searching the registry has been useless thusfar. Thanks again.

Click Start, and then click Run. In the Open box, type regedit, and then click OK. Locate the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion To change the company name, do the following: In the right pane, double-click RegisteredOrganization. Under Value data, type the name that you want, and then click OK. To change the name of the registered owner, do the following: In the right pane, double-click RegisteredOwner. Under Value data, type the name that you want, and then click OK. Click Exit on the File menu to quit Registry Editor. Thanks All.
