Updating to a new computer for most people is exciting, but can also be a real pain. There are a number of things that you need to remember to do before moving on to a new computer. Important files must be backed up onto external devices so that content is not lost and can be easily transferred onto the new computer. In addition, files containing confidential and/or personal information should be deleted off of the old computer if you are getting rid of the unit. Once you have completed transferring and deleting your files, you will also have to reinstall all of your beloved programs onto your new computer.
Though there is no current software or programs that can help you to figure out which files you deem as important enough to backup and save, there is a utility that can help in the area of reinstalling software onto your new computer. A major part in reinstalling software is to come up with the product keys that are needed for each program instillation. However, if you originally installed the software sometime ago and no longer have the product key, finding or generating a new product key can be a hassle, especially when you must do this for multiple programs. Magical Jelly Bean’s Keyfinder is a great freeware utility that can ease the job of reinstalling all of your software. Though it has a silly name, the freeware is a keyfinder and is slightly magical.
The Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder pulls the product key form almost any application. It is compatible with most all Microsoft Operating Systems such as, Windows ’95, ’98, ME, 2000, XP, Vista, Server 2003, Server 2008, Office XP, Office 2003, and Office 2007 family products. Most other software keys can also be retrieved due to the community-updated configuration. This keyfinder is free, easy to use, secure, and can be downloaded directly from Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder website.
