MikTeX changed the Producer Key? Well, this is not very nice.
I think one should appreciate the Producer Key. However, if
MikTeX is not blamed for that, there should be no problem to
change it again.

In file pdftex.ch delete line number 4499:

  @<Print the Producer key@>;

Then recompile pdftex. That`s all. Now you can set the Producer
Key with \pdfinfo.
