certain software show hardware id of a computer . how to change it
I don't think changing hardware id is legal... You may want to confirm that it is legal before trying to do so....
microsoft winxp generates the hardware id you refer to, i think. It uses a lot of details about your system configuration and it is so designed that it is a unique number, that means that no two systems in the world can have the same one. Though i am not too knowledgeable about it. It must be in the registry somewhere. There is a registry guru on the forum, (vishal) maybe he will have a look.
Just a short note, i got this article thro google. It is quite long, so i am just posting a link
Also check out this link for an idea for a workaround. Use your own judgement
u can change wit TweakXP Pro v4.0.6
now hardware besically means the NIC adapter ID... which can be change... just follow guide avobe....
he want change the Whole SysteM hard Ware Info..
if u install some additional h/w or remove some h/w it changes automatically. Also, every time u reinstall ur OS, a new h/w id is generated.
Separate names with a comma.
