Hewlett-Packard showing as Company Name in Microsoft Office document properties

I have a Pavilion DV6030us laptop. I installed Microsoft Office on it (Versions 2003, 2007, and 2010) on it. In all of the versions the Company name in document properties shows up as Hewlett Packard. How can I change this?

 


I went to this page
http://www.petri.co.il/change_registered_user_and_company_vista_xp.htm
and tried all of their suggestions.

Then I tried “How to change the company name and user name in Office 2003”
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=821550

I am finding a RegCompany key in the WOW6432Node. The article does not help.

I found it as a hex value in as Hewlett Packard for Company
Computer\HKEY_USERS\S-15-21....\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Common\UserInfo

However, checking the same Company key for office 12 and 14 it is my company's name. However, it still shows up as Hewlett-Packard in the document properties for documents produced in those.

Note, I checked the company name in the normal.dot and separate normal.dotm files and those show my company name, not Hewlett-Packard.

I do have a Hewlett-Packard computer. Office did not come preinstalled on it in any version other than trial, which was not used.

Found a registry entry for Company in
Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\Common\UserInfo

That had Hewlett-Packard in both Company and CompanyName. I've changed those. Time for a restart. Nope, that didn't do it. I did check though, and the changes that I made to CURRENT_USER stuck.
