regestering a program with VB, ways to fool hackers

I currently send out my software with the users details imbedded into the program.  What I want is for someone to run my program the first time and they are asked for a registration number and username - if they enter a valid name and code then they can run the program.  This has to be saved - probably in the registry. This won't stop piracy but I want a simple method of creating a name and a random key generator which anyone could use and for it to be saved....any ideas?

Here is a good place to go, it will have all of the code you need to do what you are looking for:

Once at the site do a search on 'Registration'.  You get several good and some not so good registration code generators.  I have used one from this site and it works great!
