Yes there are several programs that can show the serial, and they are not illegal tools.
In fact quite a few forum members have one particular program that shows it.

If you are worried about the security, set the policies to restrict users installing programs.

Make sure they can't login to an admin account.

And perhaps try the advice before claiming it's not a serious answer and then making a fool of yourself.

I suppose you could maybe disable access to external media in the Group Policy Editor (if the option exists) for certain users

Does Windows 7 have a Default Product Key for installation purposes only which is different to a Product Key.

That is bad....

but maybe anybody knows a way or a program that will work....


Thanks in advance
There are some utilities like Product key checker and jelly key finder. Search google and you'll find one.
