Gateway have a little program called Gateway helper that has the function in there to change the register name and company, as well as a few other things... download it from www.gateway.com

it works on non-gateway computers too (well, most of the functions in it do, a couple don't I think)

...You can change Windows' registered user and company information from System Registry.

Open the Registry Editor by selecting Start, Run, typing regedit, and clicking OK.

Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion key. You'll see the RegisteredOrganization and RegisteredOwner string values (or AB icons) in the right pane.

To change one of these values, double click it to open its Edit String dialog, type in the new information, and press OK.

Repeat for the other entry if necessary, and close RegEdit.

Note: This changes the default registered user information. Any program registration, dial-up connection, or logon you've already created with the previous name will stay in effect.
