Changing registration information in Windows Vista

I recently aquired a new HP laptop which I am fairly happy with. One thing that has been annoying me is the registered organization is for some reason set to HP. This is a minor annoyance but it has been nagging at me for over a month. So I set out to find where this is stored.

This setting is stored in the registry at the following key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion

The value is stored in the RegisteredOwner & RegisteredOrganization settings (See the screenshot above). You can double click on these to edit the information.
