    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!
