Can't find my Windows 7 CD Key

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I am looking for my Windows 7 CD key and I can't find it, I wrote it down somewhere because I bought it through a online retailer that sold it to students at discounted prices.

Is there anyway to find your Windows 7 activation key on your system because i would like to have it if something where to go wrong with my system.

Also I saw that there is some software to find your Windows 7 CD key but they seemed iffy.

Yes. There is some software that does, but I remember a virus scanner flipping out when I used one. I actually have two I downloaded, but not sure which one has the virus and which one doesn't. frown.gif

The key can be found in the registry, but supposedly it's encrypted.

I'll wait for someone trustworthy to suggest some software to actually allow you to see it.

This is what you want.


There is another called Belarc advisor, but security is questionable.
