How to Recover Your Quickbooks Serial Number and Registration Keys

How to Recover Your Quickbooks Serial Numbers and Keys After Reinstalling Windows

Sometimes the dreaded blue screen of death or the dreaded spinning circle of dots happens on your windows 10, or your Windows 7 to Windows 10 upgrade fails miserably and you then need to reinstall a fresh copy of Windows 10.  But then you lost your quickbooks registration data containing your serial number and product ID and Key. Well worry no more because it's easy to get that back.  The trick is to install windows and keep all user data and settings and then when you are done, open explorer and look in this folder:
you are looking for a file called qbregistration.dat

Quickbooks qbregisration.dat file

the contents of this file are XML. You will see the serial number and product key.
You can always copy this entire folder into it's same location on the new windows installation to quickly reactivate your old license.  Or you can just use the numbers that you see here and then re-register.

How to Export and Import Chrome Saved Passwords Using Old Versions of Chrome

How to Save Your Google Chrome Passwords, Bookmarks, and Cookies

Unfortunately as of Chrome Version 78, google has removed the ability to import passwords into chrome.  As an alternative, you can still export them out as a CSV file. But you can never import them back.  However, If you can locate Version 72 of Chrome Enterprise Full Offline Installer, you can install it, with the network cable unplugged, and then import your passwords quickly before, Chrome gets updated to the latest version, and drops the password import feature.  To import passwords, install chrome 72, then disconnect your network, and then go to chrome://flags in the address bar. Search for "Passwords" or "import".  When you locate the import feature, enable it. Then restart Chrome, then go to Settings->passwords and click on the little dots, then import your passwords.

Save the Chrome Data Default Profile

Alternatively, you can grab the file called "Login Data", "Bookmarks" and "Cookies" from %userprofile%\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default and save them to a USB drive, then drop them into another user profile in the same place.

Download Old Versions of Chrome

We are offering two old versions of 64 bit Chrome that you can use with the above advice.  Chrome Version 58 and Chrome Version 72 Enterprise. Download and Enjoy. 

How to Migrate Passwords from One Computer to Another

Step 1: Export the passwords to a CSV file on the old computer
Step 2: On the new computer, uninstall Chrome
Step 3: On the new computer download Chrome version 72 using the above link
Step 4: Open a command prompt and enter ipconfig /release or just pull the network cable
Step 5: in the address bar enter chrome://flags and then enable the password import feature
Step 6: Import the passwords from the CSV file
Step 7: in the command prompt: ipconfig /rewew or reconnect your network
Step 8: Allow Chrome to Update, install the newest Chrome updates, which will eliminate the password import feature, while keeping your newly imported passwords
