JSI Tip 0095 - Is the WinNT record of the software owner incorrect?

Did the persons who installed Windows misspell your (or your companies) name? Perhaps you had a little too much wine while doing the install? In either case, you can correct the problem by editing the registry at:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion

Double click on RegisteredOrganization in the right hand pane and change the registered organization (company).
Double click on RegisteredOwner in the right hand pane and change the registered owner.
