There are two ways to do this then since this isn't working. Before doing either please do another Erunt backup of your registry.
Happyrock beat me again :)

First way:

Just copy the following into Notepad,


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion]
"RegisteredOrganization"="Your Organization Here"
"RegisteredOwner"="Your Name Here"


Put your name/organization info in the appropriate places
Replace the "Your ... Here" stuff between the quotes with your actual information
Save the file as MYINFO.REG
Now open RegEdit and import the MYINFO.REG file into the registry
Close Regedit and reboot


Second Way:

OPEN Regedit Start > Run > RegEdit
Go to the Key (HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion)
Create a DWORD and name it RegisteredOrganization and put the information you want in.
Create a DWORD and name it RegisteredOwner and put the information you want in.

Close Regedit and reboot

Personally option Option One is my choice
Let us know if this works for you.

Actually not really. Just taking my time and answering correctly to a few and not many. This was suggested by a very wise and usually always correct Tech Staff. :) :)

Doesn't say Registered Name.
Can't find that any where.

Only said was;
NAME-TYPE-DATA
DEFAULT-REG_SZ-(VALUE NOT SET)

Preferred option one also.

Didn't know how to create a DWORD.

Can't figure out.

after backing up your registry try going here...download and run EXE Version: Download the ChangeOwnerOrg.zip file and save it to your hard drive. Double-click the ChangeOwnerOrg.zip file and extract the EXE file inside to your hard drive. Double click ChangeOwnerOrg.exe to run the program....
Non-Administrators cannot change these values. Users who do not have "write" permissions for these values will receive an error message.



Did you try this above that Happyrock suggested?
