Default Windows calls me "owner"

I think this happened because I did not set a name for my account on time. However...
Even though my user name is "my name." When I go to my hard drive and open the documents and settings folder I am still listed as "owner."
How can I change that to "my name"? When I try to right-click and rename the folder I get an error message.
Also, I am the only user of this computer, but there is an "Administrator" user, what is this? All my stuff is under "owner," I just want the folder name to be "my name."
I deleted the "administrator" folder.

Well, luckily the "administrator" folder is still on the trash, I will restore it ASAP.

Maybe there isn't a way...unless I format my HD or something. I'm not too desperate.
