Windows Product Key — Key Finder

Posted on March 4, 2011


It wasn’t that long ago that my hard drive crashed and I had to reload the software, but I couldn’t find my MS Windows Product Key. Fortunately, I found a free online keyfinder. The Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder (MJBK) was free to download/use and it did the trick. Not only was I able to find the keys to my software, but I was able to print off the keys for future use.

The MJBK also finds Adobe, Windows 7 and Office 2010, and other keys, but that version is not free. It costs $24.95.

It happened to me one other time after that, but I did not have access to the Internet to download MJBK. I called Microsoft, and they assigned me a new key over-the-phone for a minimal fee of $9.95 — much cheaper than paying for the software package all over again.

Anybody else use other options that worked?
