I cloned a hard drive and installed it on a new computer.  Teamviewer was installed on the clone and I have duplicate teamviewers running on different computers.  I was able to change password on one computer so I know which one I am accessing.
I have tried to uninstall/reinstall teamviewer and it's the same id after the install.  How can I clear everything and install a fresh copy with different id?

The following worked for me:

Only do this procedure on cloned machine!

Uninstall Teamviewer
On 64bit Windows 7 delete the following reg key:
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\TeamViewer\Version[Number you have installed before]
On 32bit Windows 7 delete the following reg key:
HKLM\SOFTWARE\TeamViewer\Version[Number you have installed before]
Reinstall Teamviewer, it should now generate different id
