Jelly Bean Key Finder...

Jelly Bean Key Finder is a free application that can not only identify the current key but let you quickly change the product key as well. Just note that some antivirus software incorrectly identifies it as potentially dangerous.

Hope this helps,

I dont remember the exact location but if you read the other options on the window you will see something that says to change the product code or something similar.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
