What machine id are you talking about? Are you looking for computer name or description?

Right click on My Computer. Go to properties and select computer name. Click on change and change the values to whatever you want.

In the zone
Rightclick "My Computer" > click "Properties" >
In the general menu - it shows the info for
System:
Registered to:
Computer:

You can change the name and company and Product Id of the user to whom windows is registered.
I use TuneUp Utilities 2006, it got an option to change the Product ID, but i personally never used it.

You can download TuneUp Utilities from
http://www.tune-up.com/

hope it helps.

YOU CANNOT CHANGE THE PHYSICAL ADDRESS OF THE LAN CARD! Its called the MAC address(Media Access Control). Its like a fingerprint. No card has the same ID anywhere in the world.

well guys if u dnt no i should tell u.
there is a software that is able to change the machine id.
well it doesnt really changes it.
the working goes this way.
when the system boots up and bi0s looks up for devices the lan card sends its configurations to bi0s. when bi0s sends these settings to the operating system, the software interrupts in between and send its own mac address that is given by u.
now i can dial any of the sify connections on my set.
if u want it mail me on

Don't mention your email address in your posts. You are inviting spam and troublemakers.

Well guys...

We can change the MAC address of a lan card

If you use a lancard with realtek drivers or D-link, then follow the method below directly

Open the Control Panel and navigate to Network connections.

Double click the Broad Band connection which you use to connect

Click Properties. You find your Lancard there under "Connect Using".

Click Configure and Go to Advanced Where you find some of the properties like "Recieve Buffer", "Incoming Buffer" etcc..

There You find a property called "Network Address" or "Network Identifier" (Based on the Lancard company) and its default value is set to Not Present. You also find a box above. Type the desired Machine address there... Ok and then you are done.

For people who donot find any property mentioned above can use any of the mac address changing softwares. One of them is listed
A-mac

Note :
Many network Administrators identify the systems based on their MACHINE address.

Right off the assembly line
I purchased a new software, I received the licence key. When I install the software, the Licence key tracks with the Machine ID "6rqy1b6sg23hkw3m" and I am not allowed to install it in my laptop, stating that this softare can be used in only one machine. Is there any way, I can change my laptop mchine ID to the desktop ID so that, I can install in Laptop also. Please reply

Legen-wait for it-dary!
^^ There is nothing called machine id, so the software must generate the id based on some unknown stuff, maybe the hardware. contact the company, or get yourself a crack or keygen.
