|Change the Default Name and Company Information (All Windows)|
Category: Home > Software
When you install a new application, using MS Setup, a default Name and Company are shown, these values can be changed when the details have changed or are incorrect.
Open your registry and find the key below.
Modify the two values named 'DefName' and 'DefCompany', and change the values to your current Name and Company respectively.
The next time you install a program these new values will be used as the defaults instead.
Note: This will not affect the registered names of existing applications, it only affects new installations.
