    I am not intentionally attempting to do anything illegal... I have already purchased the licence for the software... but when I attempt to activate it on another machine it says the licence is already reached its 1 user capacity.

    I would like to remove the licence key on one machine, then uninstall the product.
    Then install a fresh copy onto my other computer...

    As I have already purchased this licence it is hardly illegal, afterall it won't allow me to have more than one product running with the same licence at one time anyway...

    Hope someone can help! :confused:

    You would be better served to "throw the program to the dogs." Registry "cleaners" are apt to do more harm than good. See info below, which is in a file I created from comments by knowledgeable folks here at TSG.

    Advice and Info re Registry 'cleaners'- excerpts from TSG, 10-07

    The main reason they are apt to cause problems is because the cleaners do NOT just clean up stuff left over from uninstalls. They also "guess" that other items need to be deleted, many times incorrectly. They also attempt to "fix" references to files that no longer exist.

    As a result, you can end up with programs that no longer work, functions that no longer work and in some cases a PC that will no longer boot.

    There is no performance gains to be had by running these things. Windows does not read the entire registry when it is looking for something. It uses the keys which allow them to go straight to the item that they are looking for.

    If you really want to see how active the registry is in your normal running environment, download and run Regmon.

    As you will see, the registry is constantly being accessed. If, for each of these, the entire file was being searched, your PC would be amazingly slow and not responsive.

    You only think you're not doing something illegal, however the whole intent of the license is for you to buy as many copies as you have machines.
