This one-trick pony lets you change your Windows registered name and company. XP Registered Name Changer has a plain, yet easily comprehensible, interface with boxes for you to quickly input a new registered name and company for your OS. You can view the current name and company with one click. Although the company name isn't required, the registered name must be input. Changes were made nearly instantly and did not require a reboot. While we certainly don't advocate making unauthorized changes to licensed software registration, any user who needs to adjust errors in their Windows registration will find this freebie handy and quick.
