    I don't think changing hardware id is legal... You may want to confirm that it is legal before trying to do so....

    Cheers...

    microsoft winxp generates the hardware id you refer to, i think. It uses a lot of details about your system configuration and it is so designed that it is a unique number, that means that no two systems in the world can have the same one. Though i am not too knowledgeable about it. It must be in the registry somewhere. There is a registry guru on the forum, (vishal) maybe he will have a look.

    if u install some additional h/w or remove some h/w it changes automatically. Also, every time u reinstall ur OS, a new h/w id is generated.
    I dream of a better tomorrow... where chickens can cross roads and not have their motives questioned.
