Once you have downloaded this portable app, run its .exe file. To start editing the information, hit Enter.

In the box which opens, type the information you want changed. Click OK to change the next parameter.

This app let you change Windows edition, procesor name, RAM, System Type, Computer name, full computer name, full description and Workgroup.

Do note that I have not tried it, but you can download it from here. (UPDATE: Please read comments first)

You can also check out Windows 7 OEM Info Editor or our freeware Ultimate Windows Tweaker. They allow you to change OEM information like Manufacturer, Model, etc.

    I think this only changes them in the box you open, not in your actual system files! Waste of time and has no use unless you wish to fool someone in you have a better machine!

    The OEM Info Editor is handy for System Builders/Refurbishers …I actually use it quite often.

    But see absolutley no point to the other thing…

    I usually don’t post comments but I am an occasional reader of this site, so here goes:

    1) “How to change or edit Windows 7 System Information”
    This is a badly written article. Ugh. It’s as if the author just wanted his paycheck so he wrote this. The title is misleading. I didn’t learn anything. It should be “Free Apps to Change Windows 7 System Information” because the author didn’t provide any actual how-to’s.

    2) “Do note that I have not tried it, but you can download it from here.”
    Poorly researched. Aren’t you supposed to test softwares first before writing/recommending it?

    3) Worse, the writer claimed not having tested it and yet even made a short demo/tutorial how to use it. Sad.

    4) “(: Please read comments first)”
    This site is not facebook or twitter where you just share something that looks interesting to you. This is a site about Windows, so whatever you write should persuade the readers whether or not to try a product. We, as readers, trust that you could give an honest opinion about this. But you gave us a crappy article that seem more like gossip. Ugh.
