Cannot read windows activation key on sticker

HP Recommended
Pavillion dv6000
Microsoft Windows Vista

The sticker with the product key is smeared and i cannot read it to reboot windows.  Is there a way to find the product key?  One option is to "access your computer with reduced functionality."  Any help would be appreciated.

There is a utility you can download that can retrieve the product key, but I don't know if that can run in something as old as Vista:
