Changing license key

I had to reinstall my windows 2003 and appears my key got leaked and is now blacklisted. I have since got a new key from MS but now my server needs to have the key changed. I am looking to do this without having to reinstall. Is it possible to change my key so i can get my updates? If so, where is the key stored these days in 2k3? Thanks,

I tried both scripts from microsoft and it errors out when I use my new key. Can you explain more what this program does? I hate to run something from someone unknown.

The XP product key could not be changed, since a fatal error occurred!
