Rebooting Help with Windows XP

Post by Blackwand on 26th May 2010, 3:41 am

s there any possibility of finding your product key on your current OS, maybe in a folder or something :S I am in need of rebooting my Computer but i have lost my win XP CD which had the code on it. I built my computer myself. Could anyone tell me my current options? Unfortunantly System Restore wont work at all for me.

I need this done because im not sure whats wrong with my computer since it suddenly doesnt play certain Games anymore when it used it perfectly. i tried to delete and re-install all the latest drivers for all my hardware and even took out some of the hardware so yea its kind of a mess and i want a new start.

Hi Cheesy Grin (sparkly
as I stated before, I don't know this program and the website isn't really
classified (Web of Trust - WOT ) yet.

You've no Anti Virus ? Afraid Ouch . Let me think Why ?
It's highly recommended to install it !
Anyhow, just found another site, it should be safe :

... give yourself a favour and install an Anti Virus protection, should you need help,
feel free to ask .
Regards

Hi again Sariel, Thanks also again for the extra info and the link much apprieciated. On the topic of Anti virus programs, are there some free ones you would recommend, maybe like a top 3 or something.

P.S i've never had to reboot my computer before so im assuming i can use anyone's XP reboot CD and just put in my own CD key and all should be well?

Thanks

Thank Sariel For your help with both the Key finder and Antivirus program, but as for the link about rebooting without a CD didnt help me (or i couldnt see it) so im still lost as how to reboot/reformat my computer without owning the CD, any help would be greatly appreciated thanks again. Cheers
