    I'm not sure whether there's a way built into Windows, but there are certainly third-party programs that will show it to you.

    Look for a program called aida32. Its freeware or shareware and will show you a kinds of cool stuff about your computer, including your CD key.

    for anything other than XP:
    Code:
    HKEY_LOCALMACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\ProductId
    For XP (needs decoding):
    Code:
    HKEY_LOCALMACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\DigitalProductID

    Why not check the CD Jewel of the Disk. It may also be on your computer on an OEM sticker :hs:
