changing registered name in XP
I have a new laptop that my boss purchased for work use. I set it up and of course, registered Windows in his name and several programs wer done the same way.
He has since purchased another laptop (better than this Dell) and plans to use it instead. So now, I'm using the Dell that is registered in my his name.
I know how to change the name and company that Windows is registered to in the registry and I've been able to find a few programs and change those as well. My questions is about the way the user accounts work.
After I changed the registry info, I then created a new admin user account and deleted the one I had created for my boss. Only thing is when I log into windows, it still has his name as the account name, even though the password for the new admin account will work when his name is left in the username box. I can either leave his name or replace it with the username for the new account...either works.
I also noticed that in the documents and settings folder, there was not a folder created for the new account...it's using the default one with his name on it.
How can I (short of reloading) have the default login name be something other than his name and how can I get a new documents and settings folder that is something I choose (since you can't simply rename the old folder)?
