Editors' Review

Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder won't help you find your car keys or point you to the Easter Bunny's stash. But if you need to reinstall Windows and can't find your product key, it might be seem magical to you. This free utility retrieves your Windows Product Key (CD key) from your registry and saves it to a text or CSV file. If you need to reinstall Windows but don't have the Product Key because you lost the original CD or case, it can save your bacon, or at least a lot of your time. It works in most versions of Windows from 95 to 7. The latest release also supports Windows Server 2000.

We installed and opened Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder. Immediately the program produced a dialog displaying four entries in the left-hand sidebar: our Windows version, Windows Information, Office, and our freeware firewall app. Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder displayed the data for the first entry, Windows, in the main view. The program correctly identified our version, 64-bit Windows 7 Home Premium SP1. It also displayed Product Part Number, installation media, Computer Name, and Registered Owner (also Organization, where applicable). Best of all, it displayed both the Product ID and CD Key, with a match to CD Key data. We expected no less, but it's still a relief! But nothing like the relief we'd have felt at recovering those critical keys in time of need, and so easily, too. Anyone who has reinstalled Windows at 3 o'clock in the morning, after exhausting every fix, should be able to understand how we feel. The other entries showed similar data, only not as extensive. For example, our firewall only showed a serial number since we hadn't registered a name or company.

Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder is an extremely simple tool that's just as easy to use. Basically, it has one trick, but it's a good one. A premium version, Recover Keys, adds additional capabilities such as Adobe compatibility, networked PC scanning, USB portability, and technical support. Most users will probably find the freeware takes care of business; if not, try the shareware. It's cheaper than replacing your broken Windows!

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder 2.0.8.
