    Can Registered To be changed?

    Is there a way to edit what is displayed under "Registered to" in system properties? During the install I put "1" in the field just to get on with it so doing a search in the registry has been impossible, too bad I didn't use something a little more unique.
    Thanks, Greg

    You can indeed change it. It requires a registry edit, so the usual cautions apply - back up the registry (in Windows 98, this can be done by going to Start - Run and entering scanregw). Rather than reprint the instructions, take a gander at the steps listed on this page and post back if you have any other questions.

    Mark, the "this page" referral takes me to a website that requires membership. Could you post the steps that you suggested?

    Thanks--Steve

    Since Mark's not online now:
    1. Go to Start/Run & type regedit & press <enter>.
    2. Navigate by clicking the plus signs to

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentV ersion

    3. Scroll in the right hand pane to RegisteredOrganization &/or RegisteredOwner.
    4. By double clicking the icon in the right hand pane, you can edit the value & click OK.

    Remember to back up the registry first, as Mark suggested.
