Lesson #1: NEVER throw away your Jewel case that has your CD key on it.

yes. Search for "Half-Life" or whatever folder or registry name you had for when you installed Halflife. If your hl's folder name is Half-Life. good. Search for that in regedit, tehn search all the folders in the Half-Life folder looking for the cd-key - you'll find it, itll be easy :)

Start -> Run -> type "regedit" w/out quotes

(when in RegEdit) HKEY_CURRENT_USER -> Software -> Valve -> Half Life -> Settings

Now look in the right box for the field "Key"

Right click "Key" and click "Modify"

Set the Value Data to your new CD Key (without the dashes)

There, just saved you a download.
