    I came across this utility when helping a friend who lost his CD case. It
    worked so, I thought I would share the info...

    There might be a way to retrieve the CD key via the registry but, I do not
    know the MS registry very well....

    Anyway, here it is...

    P.S. it is shareware...

    It's been around for sometime and poses no system risks.

    Belarc Advisor is free for personal use ($ for business use) and does a
    pretty good job of inventorying your hardware and software (including
    all installed MS hotfixes) and decoding the MS software keys from the
    registry. The results are displayed in a web page format.
