I need to be able to find the product key on several PC's.  I would rather do this remotely, then to have to go to each PC.  Anyone know of any tools to do this?

Are these computers all on your network?  If so, this page tells about a program that apparently has the option to do that:

Otherwise, about the only thing I can think of is to have installed on all the machines one of the many free XP product key finder programs, and then run them on the remote computers via Remote Desktop or Remote Assistance.

This is a tool to find the product key for current as well as remote systems on the network, if you can access all systems as an admin remotely, this will work great for you.
