How do i change the user name and details that are entered when installing Win xp. I have an idea that it can be done via the registry settings. Can anyone confirm this

Use the above little program and alter the account names in control panel, user accounts.

The program is safe and it allows you to change the registered owner/organisation bit.

To change the computer name, right "click my computer" icon on the desktop then choose properties. Click the computer name tab.

No need to mess in the registry.
