How do I change the user name which appears in the Unlock Computer dialogue box when I start up? I have tried user name change but this only attaches my correct name in brackets after the original name.

You can't.... You would have to create a new user account to change the "original username". e.g. If you started off using say "01" as your username, and later changed it to say "Demelza", then you would see "computername here\01" (Demelza)

The only way you can change both to Demelza is by creating a new account called "Demelza" but first changing your account name to something else.
