  1. Hey,

    Does anyone know if there is a way to find out what your CD Key is from you computer. I installed windows XP home on my computer about 2 months ago, and I remember saying to myself that I was going to keep track of that CD key, but I was just thinking about it now and I have no idea where I put it. I know it was on the plastic wrap around the cd, which I initially threw out without noticing it the first time, and had to go searching for it:eek: . Probably ended up there again. I am not in real bad need of it or anything, but I am just worried now that my computer is going to crash or something and then I will have to reinstall windows, but I will not have any CD key. Anyway, so if anyone knows of a way to get your CD key from your computer that would be awesome.
