It's usually either on a sticker on the top or side of your computer case, else on the cover of your Windows manual.

Download Aida32 from http://www.aida32.hu/aida-download.php?bit=32

and it will display your CD key for you.

This only cropt up a week or two ago. For Win9x/ME, in the registry go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion and scroll down in the right hand pane for the information.
