Activation information is stored in wpa.dbl in System32 folder.

User registration information (Registered owner and organization) is stored in the following Registry key on the right pane.
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion

Product registration (user name, email address, and so on) information is not store in the HD.
