MS always tells us to keep the product key in a physically safe place. But
how to protect my product key(in clear text?) in the registry that everybody
including hackers know where it is? I can hide the physically printed
product key somewhere in my home or some other place. Even someone breaks
into my home, he will spend a lot of time to find where it is. But what if
someone intrude into my computer? He knows, the product key is right
BTW, how many computers can be activated by one product key?
