If you are giving your PC away, [Even to a friend] It may be better to format the drive to remove all your information, then re-install Windows again. This way your friend will have a nice fresh O/S to start with. j.

In Win ME, the Registered Owner and Registered Organisation (as they appear when you right click My Computer and select 'Properties') are in the registry at:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion
