Where, in the system register, can I find the product registration number
for a Windows XP Pro compute?

Do you want the registration number or the CD key. The CD key is not in
there, at least not in a form you can read.

The registration number can be gotten from many free products on the web,
Belarc for one, www.belarc.com.

If you want the CD Key, try the following:
http://www.yqcomputer.com/

Greetings --

You can't. It's encrypted.

If your system still runs, you should be able to use AIDA32
Enterprise from http://www.yqcomputer.com/
Key. (If you have a factory-installed OEM license, and haven't since
reinstalled the OS, the revealed Product Key is probably of the drive
image used at the factory and not _your_ specific Product Key;
therefore, it probably cannot be -- and definitely should not be --
used for a re-installation.)
