How change name on PC

  MikejgL 15:39 28 May 2008

Our parish is about to change its vicar, and I need to update the parish computer. How can I change the name which appears at the top of the 'START' pane from that of our old vicar to that of the new? I have tried to change the name on the folder at C:/Documents and Settings/.. but Windows will not let me - tells me it's a system file. I'm pretty sure that I should be able to do this by editing the registry, but not sure how. Any suggestions gratefully received.
