Windows XP Mod Registry

Sometimes we those original Windows XP on our PC but the problem is that they were installed by the vendor itself. They even go through the trouble to register it. So now that’s that, the name on the Windows XP is preset with a different user let’s say Admin. So I want to Modify the Registry for the name.

How to Change It?

Basically the names on the Windows is stored in the registry.

Click Start >> Run >> Type Regedit
Then to simplify the whole thing, search for a value name RegisteredOwner. Double click it and voila, you can change the name inside it. Click OK and then close RegEdit. In case you need verification for it, go to  Help >> About in Windows Explorer and look for the changes in the name.

That’s as easy as 1-2-3.
