Lost my Wndows 7 package.
 
Can't seem to find where I have put my Windows 7 package. I made a backup of the disk when I bought it and put the original away for safe keeping. I have moved house and it is packed away somewhere. Just can't find it atm. :(

What I want to know is there a way to find my key so I can just do a reinstall of windows using my backup disks. I know it is logged in the windows registry somewhere.

Yes you can locate Windows 7 product key with a freeware program like Winkeyfinder.

Yes it legal freeware as I double checked, Winkeyfinder can be download from popular freeware/trialware download sites such as download.cnet.com, brothersoft.com and softpedia.com.

I think it's legal if it's used for its intended purpose.

There is another piece of software called belarc advisor that will do the same thing. It is a legit piece of software used for auditing.

Thanks for your help guys. That worked a treat. Now I will just have to find where I have packed my original disk.
