Product Keys - Verizon/Norton

I have an XP box that might be infected.  It's got some latency.  The Event Viewer is showing a long list of unrelated errors that prove time consuming to research.  A couple of technicians have already spent time on the box and my instructions are to simply reinstall XP and Office.

I do not want to remove Verizon's version of Norton Antivirus.  It could be preventing a flood of infections.

I want to run ProduKey to recover they keys prior to a reinstallation.

Norton automatically deletes the ProduKey executable.  The interface is unfriendly; I can't find the exceptions list.

I'm tired of having helpful utilities like Jelly Bean and ProduKey deleted from my flash disks etc.  AV companies need to get a clue.

Consumers have a right to recover their own product keys.  Manufacturers and software vendors have not accommodated the consumer.  Thanks a million.  Lovin it.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Why not disconnect your computer from the Internet, disable (temporarily) Norton, then run Magical JellyBean?

One tool that I have used more than one to recover all software keys from a system is the Belarc Advisor.
