View Full Version : Changing registration name in Win98



09-04-2002, 09:57 PM
Does anyone know if it's possible to modify the registry of Win98 to change the registered user name - it's not as dodgy as it sounds. I've got a machine that I would like to sell with the Win98 CD, but don't want to reinstall it just to get my name off the machine. Any way this can be changed without a reinstall?

Thanks in advance

Prehaps there is a way to change it with regedit? ideas anyone?

Search the registry for the key: registeredowner
When it finds it right click and select modify.
