creating a new user log in and getting rid of one

Hi All,

My daughter has been given a laptop second hand, and I want to remove the current user login, which comes up with the previos owners name (no password required as this had been cleared). I would like to amend this to my daughters name, can someone point me in the right direction to do this?

Cheers in advance.
