If you are using Microsoft Windows Vista and you want to change the name of the owner in the operating system, here’s how to do it. Click “Start” then in the search box enter without quotes “regedit.exe” then click “regedit” in the search result. You can also launch regedit from the command prompt. Click “Start”, “All Programs”, “Accessories”, and then select “Command Prompt”.

In the command prompt, type without quotes “regedit” then hit Enter. In the “Registry Editor” window, locate the following registry key on the left pane: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion]. On the right pane, look for the “RegisteredOwner” key, double-click it then specify a new name and then hit Enter. This actually also applies to other versions of Microsoft Windows not just Windows Vista.

Aside from the owner name, you can also change the name of the organization that was registered on the computer by double-clicking the “RegisteredOrganization” key. If you cannot activate Windows Vista online, you can do it by phone. To activate Windows Vista by phone, click “Start”, right-click “Computer” and select “Properties”. Select “Activate Windows” located at the bottom of the window.

In the “Product Activation Wizard”, click “Use the automated phone system to activate”. On the next screen, select the location nearest to you from the dropdown menu then click “Next”. This should display the Product Activation Center phone number then just follow the instructions. For more information, go to Get Help Activating Microsoft Windows.
