    Hey, how do I change the owner name in the registration? Got a PC second hand from a friend and don't need his name in there anymore.

    Start Regedit
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion
    From there you can edit the name in the Registered Owner key

    No sweat. There's some 3rd party software out there to do this automatically if you need to do this often. But figured you were only really going to do it once so the Reg edit is pretty easy.
