    If you want to change the company name that is displayed in the Office programs, then follow these steps:

    • Click Start > click Run > type regedit > click OK.
    • Try to locate and select the following key :
    • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\< GUID>
    • where <GUID> is the Product Code for the version of Office that is installed.
    • Double-click RegCompany in the Name column.
    • Change the text in the Value data box, click OK.
    • Locate and select the following key:
    • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\10.0\Common\UserInfo
    • On the Edit menu, click Rename.
    • Type OldUserInfo, and then press ENTER.
    • On the Registry menu, click Exit.


    Note - If you are unable to locate the key, follow this -
    • locate and select the following key : HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/Microsoft/Windows/Current Version/Installer/Userdata/S-1-5-18/Products/< GUID>/InstallProperties where <GUID> is the product code for the version of Office that is installed
    • In the Name column, double-click RegCompany.

    1. Run the Registry Editor (REGEDIT.EXE).
    2. Open the key - HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ SOFTWARE\ Microsoft\ Windows NT\ CurrentVersion.
    3. To change the values of the RegisteredOrganization, RegisteredOwner, or ProductId, simply double-click on them.


    Note: This will only change the registered user information for Windows, not for the applications on your system. These steps applies to Windows 2000, 2003, XP, Vista
