Windows 7: Can't Find Key

Can't Find Key

So I am using Windows 7 64 bit and can't install SP1 since there are some files that are missing or corrupt. I have tried a bunch of key finders and non of them can find me my Windows 7 product key. I don't have my key since I used a program through college to get WIndows 7 and they didn't give me a product key. Does anyone know of a program or a different way to pull my product key?

Try KeyFinder.cfg from MagicalJellyBean Software or Nuclear Coffee RecoverKeys.

Download and install Belarc, which displays a full inventory of your system including your product keys.

The senior members presented much better ideas. MagicalJellyBean Software keyfinder is better for XP systems, but is free. I believe, to this day, it still presents a false positive.

Belarc's product does a full audit. Good idea.

I tried KeyFinder.cfg, Belarc, and SIW. Non of them can find me my key. The only program that pulled up a key was Belarc and it says the key is BBBBB-BBBBB-BBBBB-BBBBB-BBBBB which is wrong since it also says that is the key for internet explorer.

Is there any other free programs that would be able to pull my key?

How did you install Windows 7 & activate when you got it in college ?

You could try this: Product Key Explorer 2.0.9 Free Download. Retrieves product keys from network computers

But as theog said, your first port of call should be the college IT administrator.

It would appear, at least, the Windows 7 install isn't a legal one, maybe. Each of those programs will find your key, if present, along with keys you didn't know you have.
Major Geeks has a long list of key finding programs, some are pay for though. Many are free.
