Hi,

A quicky or not so quicky. I recently reinstalled XP and when I was registering at the reinstall time I was following instructions that said to register as "Temp". Now I did that and now I'm stuck with the PC registered as "Temp". I have to continually change the "Temp" to my name when registering new programs and the like. Is there a way to change this on my PC without totally reinstalling XP just to change the registered name from "Temp" to mine? Thanks.

John :thumbsup:

Hi. Please download and install the program Registry Lite from here:

http://www.resplendence.com/reglite

Once it is installed, please double click on the icon that should now be on your desktop. If an icon is not there, then check under programs portion of the Start Menu.

Once it is opened, copy and paste the below line, into the address field of Registrar Lite.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\\RegisteredOwner

And press enter. You will now be presented with new information in the bottom right and left sections and on the right section.

Scroll down to registered owner and change the data there by double-clicking on it

Hi Grinler,

Thanks for the suggestion. I did what you suggested and it was easier then I thought with that tool. Should be all straightened out and registered under my name instead of "Temp". Thanks.
Oh by the way, would this tool work for getting the Startup and Shutdown jingles back? I did everything I can at Sounds and Audio Devices to reactivated those sounds but no luck. They are there and work but will not listen to reason and let themselves be reactivated. Can this tool help with that? I like those jingles and would like to have them back for Startup and Shutdown. Thanks.

John :thumbsup:

I would only use registrar lite when you know what you are doing. Tampering with the registry can cause major problems in the system.

What is happening in the sound control panel that makes it so you cant set them back to the sounds you want?
