    Can anybody tell me how to change who the computer is registered to. If you look at the properties under the MY COMPUTER icon, under the general tab it tells who the computer is registered to. Is there any way of changing that without intalling the operating system again?

    Thanks IN advance

    Before doing this i recommend creating a system restore point(just in case)

    What you need to do is open registry editor and navigate to

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ SOFTWARE\ Microsoft\ Windows NT\ CurrentVersion

    then on the right window look for RegisteredOwner and double click it. Overwrite what is currently there to what you want it to show then OK.

    Done:)

    Hope this helps:)

    Does it matter if I am using Windows 2000, or will it still be in windows nt directory?

    Yes this should still be in the WindowsNT for 2000.

    the registry path should be the same for 2000.
