Registry Hack?

I formatted an old Laptop I have to give to my cousin and I accidentally misspelled his name and now whenever I register software it comes up with his name misspelled. Any idea where I can go to correct the spelling?

quickest way I've found is just open up regedit and search for the misspelled name then correct it on any hits.

I don't recall the key offhand but I bet if Beavis sees this he will chime in.

Thanks! Found it and changed it. Don't have anything to install right now but I'm sure it will be fine.
