Reviews from credible sources

Recover Keys KeyFinder review by SoftPedia


Recover Keys is a powerful Windows tool designed to help users recover product keys for Windows, Microsoft Office and many other installed apps. As compared to all the other apps on the market developed to serve the same purpose, Recover Keys provides many more options, allowing you not only to scan the local computer, but also network workstations, another Windows operating system or various Windows components.

For example, Recover Keys can look for product keys in the Adobe cache.db file if you're trying to get the license key for an Adobe piece of software, but it can also check registry files for available information. A standard scan doesn't take more than a few seconds, with Recover Keys showing the product name, type and license key in a very well organized interface.

What's more, the application lets you export the collected information to a number of popular formats, including TXT, HTML, Word, Excel, PDF, CSV or XML.
Although a help section isn't available in the app, the developer lets you ask for technical support using an online contact form, but an Internet connection is obviously needed.
The program however works smoothly on all Windows versions and it doesn't affect the overall stability of the system. No administrator privileges are needed on Windows 7 workstations.
To sum up, Recover Keys is clearly one of the best tools developed to recover lost product keys. It provides a great feature package and comes with a straightforward GUI that makes everything easy as pie for all user categories.

Bogdan Popa, Softpedia on July 13th, 2012 review of Product Key Finder Recover Keys

Recovery keys is an excellent, full featured keyfinder program.
Pros: Supports a huge list of programs and games, well designed interface, scanning of networked computers is very easy. Cons: Keys are not displayed instantly, installation is required.

Finds Keys for Operating Systems: Microsoft Windows 7, Vista, XP, 2000, and NT. Finds Keys for Other Software: Most Microsoft Office programs, Adobe applications, and many other popular programs - well over 800 in total. I tested Recover Keys using their demo version which restricts product key recovery to the first 4 characters.
