That code is the product ID, an algorithm of the computers hardware addresses and serial code and what not and the product key. The code is used when one activates XP with Microsoft.
Oh well never mind, I'll have to go back to Cantabury next week and use a key recovery program. I'd have done it when I was up there the other day but the computer isn't connected to the internet so my only option was to write that product id down. Not that it did me any good. Thanks anyway.
