I have a laptop that came with Windows 7 Professional installed. But I recently have to format it. I need to enter the product key again but the sticker on the laptop is not readable now as it is quite old now. Is there a way out to view my Windows 7 product key?

In order to reinstall Windows, you must have access to a product key for that version of the operating system. The product key can typically be found on a yellow sticker on the CD case of the installation CD, or on a small sticker on the outside of the PC’s case. What to do if you misplace the product key and have to reinstall Windows? Don’t worry! With Product Key Finder you can easily view the product key for your Windows 7, Vista and XP installations.

Product Key Finder is one of the best product key viewer utilities which allows you to view the product keys of Windows, Office, SQL Server and many other software installed on your computer.
