No help for RegEdit but Speccy would probably be easier and faster.

Couldn't you just get that information using IRST or maybe even Disk Management?

I need know where that info is stored, whats the point to use a software to show me it, and don't know how to reach it, that computer identification displayed "ec7f2aaeeb5d", it not stored in regedit keys?

When i use a software like hardware serial disk, to change my volume id 0A87-85F8, that PC ID "ec7f2aaeeb5d"changes in their website

The hard disk serial number is stored in the drive itself. It is not stored in the registry.

I doubt that the number "ec7f2aaeeb5d" itself is found anywhere in your computer. It will be a number that identifies your computer. How it is derived is almost certainly undocumented. I would advise you to stay within the rules established by the game website. I will not help to do otherwise. Any attempt to do so and you risk a permanent ban from the game.

My understanding is ca10c3sar is trying to hack the gaming site computer identification code.

Is that correct??

The interesting thing will be if the game site monitor the web for this sort of question - which a lot do, and then ban the number given in this thread completely for attempted cheating through hacking the game
