Is it possible to view serial key manually? I have all tools to view and change key, but I'm trying to view it manually in registry, but not succeed yet.

That's the product ID, not the Product Key.

There are many programs which can find your product key, some have already been mentioned and others like SIW (which is really cool, gives tons of info about your computer and is really small). As far as I know, the Product Key cannot be found in the registry, at least not in plaintext form.

My fault Andrew I misread. Anyway Andrew is correct. Not to mention messing around in the registry, if your not an experienced user, is extremely dangerous.
