right click My Computer and left click on properties/computer name/change

hit the windows key/pause-break key combination then when the system properties applet opens look under the 'computer name' tab. You can change it there.

Sorry I don't think I made myself clear. What I need to do is change the windows name.

The name I need to change is the registered name

do you mean the registered USER name?
