If you have obtained a computer from someone else or a company then you can change the Registered Owner or Organization name to your own.
Many computer users who have written into us have stated that they inherited or purchased a second hand computer from someone else or on discount via eBay or online computer company. Some of the systems range from refurbished models to slightly used PCs that were returned to the store without any damages. Among the messages that we received users wanted to know how to change the registered owner or organization listed on the computer.
Each PC, upon installation of Windows, asks that you enter your name or company name fore registration of Windows or for indentifying the ownership of a certain computer. If you ever wondered how you change the “Registered to” name or company then we will explain to you how to do this through editing a registry entry.
