When installing some softwares, like Microsoft Office, we are required to typed owner and organization information, which may be used for registration and displayed in “About” windows. However, these softwares usually read “RegisteredOwner” and “RegisteredOrganization” from the registry of windows system as their default user name and organization.
Now You may wonder where these two values come from. In fact, they were stored in registry when you installed you windows operation system and input your user name at the first time. After that, whether you edit your user name or add a new user, these two values will not be under the influence.
However, you can modify them though EDIT YOUR REGISTRY as follows:
Click on “Start Menu” – “RUN”, typed “regedit”, to launch your registry editor. Then navigate to
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersion] ,
“RegisteredOwner” – modify your user name;
“RegisteredOrganization” – modify your organization name.
ATTENTION: The action may influence some softwares which were previously registered.
