"If you want to setup your computer system again you need to have the licenses and serial numbers at hand for all the software programs that you have purchased and registered. This does include the Windows product key but also other serial numbers for applications like Nero, Office, VMWare and pretty much every other application.
Instead of searching for the keys in your emails, manuals and recipes you could use another approach. License Crawler is a sweet little application that scans the Windows Registry for Windows product keys and other serial numbers and licenses.
The License Crawler can discover application product keys and other serial numbers or licenses very quickly and supports all versions of Windows operating system from Windows 95 to Windows Vista." (Note: latest release supports Win95, 2000, XP, 2003, Vista, 2008, Windows 7. The program need admin rights. - Ron)
"It is a portable application that can be run from any location and would be a perfect fit for an USB stick. Asking clients to find serial and license keys is often very frustrating. Instead, tech support can simply run License Crawler without having to interact with the client at all."
I've used this in the past and found it works very well. No install .zip download; open the archive and run the executable. It found 62 serials on one of my machines. The results can be saved in a text file.

I was so looking forward to post a positive reply, that it saddens me NOT to see this through. Ran the default machine scan, then scanned all machine key. but was NOT able to find several programs information. Might be they save the information in a different location. All in all, I'll keep going what I've done in the past, and just record the information on a file which I keep updating, and printing out as needed, Mindblower!
