I just reinstalled Windows XP home sp3, and I forget the product key. Where can I find it? I have 30 days to activate it.
The product key is on the packaging (jewel case or envelope) that contained your Windows XP Home CD.
If you've lost the packaging, then before you reinstalled you could have retrieved the key from the registry using one of several available tools (e.g.,
