    There sure is!

    Open REGEDIT ( start > run > regedit )and navagate to:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ProductID

    Back your reg up first, incase you change anything by mistake!

    Very nearly, you just go to Windows NT instead of Windows!

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProductID

    Actually, I'm not sure that will work. Isn't the key shown in the registry encrypted? I just looked at my reg entry at that location and it did not show my correct key.

    Here's a slick little program that will do the trick.
