View Full Version : Changing Registered User Name-MS Office

27-08-2001, 09:45 AM
I saw an earlier posting /solution for changing Windows Registered User Name, but my problem is that I have purchased a PC with MS Office 2000 installed and it still has the name of the previous owner coming up each time I open the program. Can this be changed without having to do a resore of Office?

You should be able to find it by searching the registry (REGEDIT) for the previous name.

Or I think X-Setup lets you change it (www.xteq.com).

I hope you got the office disk with the computer. Otherwise its an illegal copy.
