    is there anyway to show both the windows 8 key and windows 8 media center key. in the past you could use a keyfinder / key viewer but since win8 is so new are there any viewers specifically for windows 8. i tried most of the 1s made for earlier windows but they only showed the media center key and not the windows product (install) key after media center has been added.

    For the record, you can run cmd: "slmgr /cpky" to remove the product key from registry to prevent it from being stolen or reused, so if you are lucky, it is not removed.
