How to extract a forgotten product key from Windows 7
Sometimes you find yourself in the situation where you need to reinstall the OS or some software, but you can’t find the darn product key! Magical Jelly Bean offers a small keyfinder program that may be able to help you.
This small freeware program can be downloaded from their website and may be obtained in two versions: a freeware version and a paid version, the difference between the versions being the fact that the paid for version has a much larger scope (3000+) than the freeware version, however that might be, the freeware version is still able to extract product keys for over 300 programs, which may easily suffice, and even if you should find it necessary to acquire the paid for version, its price is a bargain at aproximately 24 USD.
I found the product extremely easy to use, you install it (avoiding the attempt to get you to install the AVG product) and run it immediate thereafter. The GUI displays the products and product key it finds on your computer, please note that the freeware program misleadingly calls a Windows 7 operating system Vista However despair not, as the product key will be correctly decyphered.
