I am not sure this will work since I have never tried it, but you could look for a file called "besernum.eml" in either "C:\windows\" or "C:\windows\system32." However, if you purchased it from Dell, they may have a record of the license key they sold. Another thought, did you register it for the initial support when you purchased it? If so, then Symantec would have a record of it.

You can also try Berlac - it will do an audit of your installed software and retrieve licences as well.

If you hadn't noticed, I mentioned Dell may have your codes in the first post. Thanks for considering that mention.
