Changing Registered User Details in XP Home

I have recently purchased a PC with XP Home from a work collegue, but how do I change his name with mine as the Registered User in System Properties? I have changed Computer Name fine, but it won't allow me to change registered user, and would not yet like to format the hard drive, just to change this element? Any advisors?

Open HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ SOFTWARE\ Microsoft\ Windows NT\ CurrentVersion.
To change the values of the RegisteredOrganization, RegisteredOwner, or ProductId, simply double-click on them.
