Windows XP Pro Information

By Dirt Burner ·
When you bring up the System Properties, on the General Tab there is System information. This is where it says "Windows XP Professional" and "Service Pack 1". Where is this information stored? Can the wording be change?

In the Registry

by TheChas In reply to Windows XP Pro Informatio ...

Like most system information, the Computer ID is stored in the registry.

The key location is HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion

CAUTION: Regedit is a powwerful tool.
If you edit or remove the wrong key, your computer can become disabled.

Make a backup of the registry before editing.
