Editors' Review

Product Key Finder has only one purpose, which is to display your Windows Product Key. It sounds like a small thing, but if you've ever had to reinstall Windows on your computer and couldn't find the product key in your pile of paperwork, you'll know this simple, free app can solve a big problem, especially if you're not comfortable digging around in the Registry.

Like many free utilities today, the Product Key Finder installation prompts you to also install additional software, but the actual Product Key Finder installation takes only a few seconds and you're set. When executed, Product Key Finder opens a dialog that shows the product keys for several packages installed on your system, but by no means all of them. The Microsoft keys are shown, as are a few other software packages such as applications from Adobe. In our tests, the results were quick and the information was correct.

While there are other products on the market that provide a more complete list of installed software and their product keys, Product Key Finder works exactly as advertised, displaying the Microsoft product keys you need to reinstall your Office or Windows software. When you don't need it, it can sit quietly on your drive or utility disk until you lose that little sticker again. When you do need it, this free program can be invaluable.

"Id give it 5 stars if it didnt try to load stuff."

December 01, 2013  |  By bikeguy1500

 |  Version: Product Key Finder 2.2.4

Pros

Did what was it was supposed to, even gave me the simms key !

Cons

As usual, It tried to sneak in McAffee (or however you spell it)junk. BOOO!! HISSS!! Just say you want to do the advanced config that unselect it.

Summary

Just pay attention and dont click mindlessly. Or you might end up eating POO like the kid on South park. :-)

"Works great - and it's FREE"

September 16, 2013  |  By mooman420a

 |  Version: Product Key Finder 2.2.4

Pros

It's free and gets most product keys.

Cons

Since it's free, it comes with some drive-by downloads that you might not need or want.

Summary

Don't like Freeware being added during the install, then READ the screens as they pop up during install and make sure you don't agree to the extra stuff. Anyone that complains that it puts the freeware stuff in...that is OPTIONAL. If you had bothered to read during the install you would have had first hand knowledge of this fact.

"Useless if you have OEM installed Windows"

January 26, 2013

 |  Version: Product Key Finder 2.2.4

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!
