Lost your Windows product key?

Great. Your system crashed, you had to reinstall Windows, and now — you can’t find that product key.

It should be on your Windows CD… oh, you didn’t ever have one?

It should then be on a sticker on your case… oh, you didn’t ever have one?

Well, try some of the things suggested by Internet Fixes… and try them BEFORE you need to do this, so you have it written down in advance.

This includes Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder: This is probably the best tool for this task. In addition to finding and identifying product keys for Windows 95/98/ME/NT/2000/XP, it can also uncover product keys for installed versions of Microsoft Office.  It’s freeware.

For Windows other than XP: If you use a version of Windows other than XP, you may have to download a WPA2 client from a third party.

Two such clients that are highly regarded are: Funk Software’s Odyssey Client (free 30-day trial) and Meetinghouse’s AEGIS Client (free 30-day trial). [from WindowsSecrets.com]  These are pay programs.

Other programs may be available for this function.  These are suggested only due to the good reviews received.

“Help for Windows 98 Users: Just because Microsoft has abandoned its support for Windows 98, it doesn’t mean everyone has to. This classic Windows 98 site is still being updated and is a mandatory visit for all Win98 users. The resources offered are quite amazing, including a downloadable unofficial Windows 98 Service Pack 2, a tutorial teaching how to incorporate ME enhancements into Win98 and much more. The site layout will give you eye strain but that’s a small price to pay for the great tips and utilities. http://www.mdgx.com/.” Recommended by Gizmo’s Tech Support Alert.
