"Current Version Full of Malware!"

April 08, 2014  |  By jhenke72

 |  Version: Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder 2.0.10.9

Pros

Works as it says it does.

Cons

Conduit Search Protect Malware Downloaded!

Summary

Used this software in the past without any issues. Regretfully this software is now no longer free, as you will pay for it with your time and patience removing malware from your computer, grrrr.

"Better Do A Custom Install"

February 25, 2014  |  By John A Dill

 |  Version: Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder 2.0.10.9

Pros

It did work.

Cons

Don't use express install. Snap.Do and Smartbar Search installed on the PC. It added 1168 malware,preference changes, registry entries etc. to a computer that I had just reloaded the OS. Thanks MJB, I'd like to rip your faces off.

Summary



Updated on Feb 25, 2014

I've used this before and never had a problem.

"Useless if you have OEM installed Windows"

January 26, 2013

 |  Version: Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder 2.0.8

Pros

It did find my Office Product Key.

Cons

If you have a computer from a large company like Dell, Sony, Gateway, etc., then you will probably get THEIR generic Product Key instead of the Key on your sticker. I re-installed Windows with Dell's OEM Windows DVD, and I used my sticker Product Key. Yet this program still comes up with Dell's Key. Also, beware: the program will give you other programs that you may not want.

Summary

You can try it, but be sure to compare the Key to your sticker!

"Not sure yet"

November 21, 2012  |  By ptsnapp

 |  Version: Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder 2.0.8

Pros

Appears to do what it says, but I would like to see if it can expand beyond some of the obvious programs. It took a bit to get past the "multiple connections" issue running it remotely on my laptop from my desktop. When running into that problem, once trying some of the suggestions on the FAQ page that addresses this, it is best to reboot both computers and it should work.

Cons

I bought the basic Recover Keys program, which is supposed to recover the keys for 3600+ programs and am perusing the list. I have Adobe Acrobat XI and it did not pick that up, so I do not know what it is missing yet.

"Exceeded Expectations"

November 07, 2012  |  By Walkabowt

 |  Version: Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder 2.0.8

Pros

I rarely review things online, but -- I bought a computer on Craig's List this weekend. I wanted to wipe the drive and reinstall Windows (the seller has done a fresh install, but I'm too paranoid to hook a strange system into my network), but the license sticker wan't on the case and the seller wasn't responding to my attempts to contact him. I could have bought a new Windows license, but then the computer would no longer be a bargain. I did a web search to see if there was a way to extract the key, and found this program.

I downloaded it from the creator's website (not CNET, since I've been burned one too many times by the adware that manages to sneak onto my system even when I think I've declined everything), installed it, and then ran the program. I expected to wait a few minutes while it scrubbed my registry, but - and here's why I'm reviewing it with 5 stars - it INSTANTLY showed me my Windows key. I'm reinstalling on that other computer as I type this!

Cons

None if you have simple needs, like getting a Windows license key. I think you have to buy an upgraded version if you want to extract things like Photoshop keys.

Major con: if you get it from CNET, you'll be forced to use their download manager and its pernicious attempts to stick adware on your computer.

"Small, Quick, Does what it's supposed to"

October 16, 2012  |  By Franknva

 |  Version: Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder 2.0.8

Pros

Small and fast with a reasonable pitch to buy the full version. Not crippled unless you want app serial numbers then you buy full version. No problems uninstalling. Found an accurate Windows 7 CD key that worked for a reinstall.

Cons

Careful during the install. You need to uncheck the install adware check box if you don't want to install it. It's checked by default so watch what you are doing during install.

Summary

This is as good as shareware is in this day and age.
