    The quotes came along for the ride when I exported the reg entry.
    I just posted to show others where to look.

    That wasn't meant to be a reg file.
    I do it manually inside of RegEdit. just delete what's at those to keys and type what ever you want

    On my desktop & laptop(both th2) it had my user name Cliff S, but in my rs1 Insider VM, winver kept showing my MSA email, so I did a search on how to change it, and, I believe it was How to Geek, that showed the reg entry.

    Hmmm so MSA on Insider, clean 1607 with local should then be ok?

    No and it really bears no relevance to anything really.
    I guess it's just a leftover from the old days where you had to punch in keys, your name & organization etc.

    It was my bad, I added it to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\OEMInformation, it should have been Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion. I'll try it again in a bit.
