Modifying an incorrectly spelt account name

  funkey_monkey 17:53 22 Jun 2008


When I first got my new laptop I was asked to enter a name for the Admin.

As I'm not used to laptops I inccorectly spelt the desired name and hit enter by accident instead of backspace.

Now, I was able to get back into create new accounts and modify the 'visible' admin name, but when new programs etc are running they are still picking up on the incorrectly spelt version.

Is there any way of correcting this?

Set up a new account (control panel and user accounts) then delete the old one. Make sure the new one is an admin acc.
