Windows 7: Strange Installation Name problem

Strange Installation Name problem

When I install programs and it asks for you name and usually company it has Microsoft as default instead on my name (IE my windows user account name).

Is this normal or is it because it's the RTM?

Ususally it uses the name/company that you filled in during install.. You can change it by doing the following ....

  1. Run Registry Editor (regedit).
  2. Navigate to the following registry key: HKEY_Local_Machine\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion

  3. In the right pane, locate the REG_SZ (string) value named RegisteredOwner. Double click on it to edit and modify the value data to change the registered owner name.
  4. Again in the right pane, locate the RegisteredOrganization. Double click on it to edit and modify the value data to change the registered organization name.
  5. Close Registry Editor.
  6. Reboot if necessary
That should do it ....
