Editors' Review

+
Finding lost application install keys is quick and simple with this handy executable, a complete rewrite of a well-received earlier version. Keyfinder Thing's simple, easy-to-understand interface has Wizard-like efficiency. This application quickly scans your system registry for 90 supported software titles and displays product names and icons in the result window. Single-button clicks copy all keys to either a text or HTML file. While an earlier version found software keys in addition to the ones supported, this version covered only 90 specified titles. Network searches are no longer available, but program search speed has greatly improved. All users can easily use and benefit from this freeware, but network administrators will find it an important part of their toolbox.

"Great Utility Program!"

November 30, 2012  |  By alborgg

 |  Version: Keyfinder Thing 3.1.6

Pros

Got my Win 7 product key in about 3 seconds after installation.

Cons

None that I could see.

Summary

I don't understand the bad reviews- the software installed flawlessly and I was able to get my lost Win 7 product key immediately. To top it off, it's free. 5 stars to the programmer!

"It does what is is suppose to."

September 26, 2012  |  By prbarry

 |  Version: Keyfinder Thing 3.1.6

Pros

It is fast and accurate.
Easy to use within it's parameters.

Cons

You cannot select which drive you want to work with.

I found this to be a big hole the program.

I have 2 HD's and 2 CD/DVD drives that I use, and I want be able to start Keyfinder Thing 3.1.6 and then have it ask me where to go; C:, D:,E: F: J: and a multi Card Reader or whateverelse I might be using to keep programs on..

Summary

Very good but with limitations that will irk some users.

"Recovers A few More Keys than the Program "Product Key""

August 26, 2012  |  By wwgorman

 |  Version: Keyfinder Thing 3.1.6

Pros

It does recover a few more keys than the Product Key but actually I have none on my computer and it is loaded. They appear to be mostly older programs that are now superseded by newer ones.

Cons

Doesn't recover enough to be worth the effort.

They have another program for $25 that does recover more and that is called "Recover Keys." I doubt it is worth the price.I could see$5.95 but not $24.95.

Summary

Don't bother. Make a speadsheet in Excel and everytime you get a new program enter the product registration information. You'll be money ahead and have a better and more complete record.

"Free and very easy to use."

April 28, 2011  |  By barnlizard

 |  Version: Keyfinder Thing 3.1.6

Pros

Free. Very easy to use, highly recommended for Microsoft products.

Cons

Does not find keys to very many programs. You have to buy other software for more programs, which is okay if you only want the Microsoft keys.
