Windows 9x:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion]

Windows NT:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion]

Then modify the values of 'RegisteredOwner' and 'RegisteredOrganization'.

Value Name:
RegisteredOwner, RegisteredOrganization
Data Type: REG_SZ

XMR_BeaNSX:  I see you are new here.  Welcome.  Please refrain from posting an "Answer" in a post.  When you do so, it reduces visibility, and locks the question from receiving comments from all except registered Experts.  Especialy when your input has already been said.  Try to use comments only unless you have a definite answer, and the post is not long, and ongoing.
Thank you.

conserval:  Any feedback from you?
