Hi I read somewhere recently that each home pc has a unique code that identifies itself to
websites. I read that this can be changed quite easily. My problem is that I downloaded an online scrabble programme called Wordbiz. I now wish to uninstall this programme and reinstall it with new user details. When I do this it informs me that I am already registered. I Do recall after my pc crashed I was able to register again as my PCs memory had been wiped.can anyone advise how I can change my PC number
Thanks
Ben

Ben, it's possible you're being 'identified' by your I.P. Address.
Try downloading Revo Uninstaller, www.revounistaller.com , and deleting the program and various fragments left behind. There are quite possibly registry entries still on your PC that identifies you to Wordbiz as well.

Before you start messing with your registry, you may just want to send an email to Support explaining your predicament. A whole lot less anxiety involved.
