To see the UUID for your system, open a command prompt, type the following
wmic csproduct get UUID

Other info that is probably unique to your PC that you can get:
wmic csproduct get IdentifyingNumber,SKUNumber
wmic baseboard get serialnumber

Re-installing Windows won't change the UUID or any of the other info for the motherboard.

Unless you have configured both your router and firewall to allow WMI access from the Internet it's already masked.

I'm curious as to why you are worried about masking it. What do you think someone is going to do with the number if they do get it?
