Ok, just inherited a computer, and obviously it has a user account, what i want to do is change it to my name, in all places.
I managed to change it on start up, but when you go into docs & settings, still comes up with the old name, if i right click and go onto rename, i can type my name in but then comes up with the message:
***** is a windows sytem folder and is required for windows to run properly. It cannot be moved or renamed.
The reason i want to change other than to get rid of old persons name, is because, cookies etc etc all come up with ******@ bla de bla.
Could do, but not got XP disc and can not get one either. I have spent ages putting A/V, spyware, cleaners etc etc on here and the problem it did come to me with is long gone, and must admit it is far better than my old comp ( that everyone on here helped me with for ages ). Soon to be even better as well since i pretty much know what to go and buy to upgrade it now thanks to members on here.
