If you’re preparing to reinstall Windows Vista you’ll need to locate your copy of the Windows Vista product key. Normally this product key is on a sticker on your computer or located with the Windows Vista product manual.

If you’ve lost your product key, it’s located in the registry but is encrypted and not readable, making finding it difficult. The key was not encrypted in previous versions of Windows like Windows 98.

Follow the steps below to locate your Windows Vista product key code.

Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: Less than 15 minutes

    Ok my desktop is retarded!!I tried to connect it to the internet via a non ppoe broadband connection but that option isn’t there! SOoo I take it to be repaired thinking it must be broken because it connected to the net just fine using my htc phone. So anyway the repair ppl reinstalled vista home and said it connected fine. Got it home and again the option to connect with a non ppoe is not there!! Called the repair ppl and they said huh don’t know we have wireless and it worked great. What the heck?? So my desktop has just been sitting there. I finally plug it in and decide to mess around with it and now windows won’t open say my product key is invalid! There was an option to have limited connection to be able to buy a new code so I clicked on that to just see what would happen and the dang thing connected to the net!!! I can surf all I want but now can’t get to the windows what is with this thing???
