i'm not gonna ask for cd-keys or anything like that

my question is fairly simple
i've got CS installed on my comp for a long time now and it works perfectly
i need to format my comp and i've lost my CS cd-key
i want to know how i can find my cd-key as it is right now
i don't wanna format before i have the cd-key written down somewhere again

thx in advance

Click Start->Run, type 'regedit' (without quotes), and hit OK.

Now, navigate through HKEY_CURRENT_USER -> Software -> Valve -> Half-Life (Or CounterStrike if you have the retail version) -> Settings, and there should be a key on the right window called 'Key', with a bunch of numbers to the right. Those numbers are your CD-key.

Good luck!
