Default How to delete Computer from PrimeNet?

I am running Prime95 on two machines, one of them is my laptop.
The problem I got is, everytime I restart it wants to creaty a new computerID. Right now I just let it work "anynomous", because I already got it listed several times in my account.

So now my question:
How can I delete those "dead" computerID from my account, so that those assingments will get done?
How do I get my laptop not to ask me for a new computerID everytime?

As per undoc.txt:

If you want to run the program on several machines this is typically done
by carrying the program and files around on portable media such as a floppy
or USB memory stick. In this case, you need to defeat the program's
automatic detection of hardware changes. To do this, in prime.txt set
FixedHardwareUID=1

Vista does not allow programs to write in the "C:\Program Files" directory. Stop and exit Prime95 and move the whole directory to "C:\Program Data" for instance.

I'm afraid this has become unnecessarily complex. For me, anyway.

Is the line: FixedHardwareUID=1 [see post 2] entered in the off line machine, the on line machine, or both?

Assuming you are using a USB key to transfer the Prime95 directoy - and you should copy and paste the whole directory, the FixedHardwareUID line would be in the prime.txt file of the directory at all times. On the offline machine, on the USB key and on the online machine. I'm assuming that you are not copying the USB key contents into an existing running copy of Prime95 on the online machine.
