TYSN: Windows XP and Vista Product Key Recovery

Generally, I try to post only original content here, but I came across something in my work that I wanted to share with everyone.

In my particular situation I have a computer that is infected with the “Personal Secruity” trojan.  No safe-mode, no “normal” mode, no nothing.  So the best solution is to reload. Unfortunately, they don’t have their product key handy.

Lo and behold, Dagon Design has an excellent method on getting the product key from the ntuser.dat file.

So, give this one a try it never hurts to practice for situations like this!
