Default Changing username in "Documents and Settings" Folder

Hi, I recently changed my login name. Lets say i changed it from "a" to "b". The folder in "Documents and Settings" didn't change from "a" to "b" but remained as "a". I tried renaming the folder but it wont allow me to. Is there anyway to change this to the updated login name? Everything works, but its just bugging me.

Boot into safe mode and logon as the administrator account and it should allow you to change it that careful when you start playing with that stuff may build you a new folder/profile if it senses the change..not sure if this is true with home users, but happens a lot with domain based users. Give it a shot..
