Windows 7: Hide/Remove Activation Key? It Could Be Done...How?

Hide/Remove Activation Key? It Could Be Done...How?

Recently on a site that explained how to install Win7 upgrade there was info on how to remove your Windows 7 Activation Key after activation.

The reason I want to do this is so that someone can't run Magic Jelly Bean and reveal my key. This happened before so that fix explaining hiding or removing it sounds great.

I've searched high and low and can't find this info anymore...Has anyone heard of how to do this?

Tks.

Hi and welcome

I dont think it is possible. Remove key changes the reg entry and would probably make it un activiated. Why cant you prevent unautorized users from havinga access. Keep them from being able to load apps, lock the dvd, lock the usbs,

Or just keep them away from the machine
