I am getting ready to format my computer and reinstall XP. I've lost the key for it though! I haven't started the process yet, so is there a way to find the key hidden somewhere in my computer? Any ideas?

It's not on a sticker on the outside of the computer somewhere?
You can download, and run, SIW, then click on Operating System.

Actually, with the new version of SIW your key might be in "Licenses" now.

Ooops. You're right. It's in both places. Licenses also gives the Office Serials and other software registration codes too.
