Thanks. But not finding it. In the that area, it lets me select an Admin profile and another profile (the one that the computer is currently registered to). When click to change, has 2 choices for roaming and local and local can be selected. Don't see an ADD there.
Don't think that's it. I have previously deleted the profile of the previous owner in the USER ACCOUNTS and have one of my own there. Deleting that profile had no effect on the "Registered to" Name in that Dialog Box i mentioned in the My Computers Properties, General. There is also a main user folder (that has mydocuments and other stuff under it) with this same persons name that will never allow me to change that name by just trying to change the name of the folder. Any help?
is part of the install process when Windows was initiated on the drive
Best I recall you need to change not only the user name but also the computer name from control panel as this will reset everything to the new name which can not be the same as the old name.
The only thing you deleted was the old profile for the orginal user when you went into my documents USERS. That has no effect on the Windows Registry which is where the information you need changed resides.
You can use REGEDIT to change the registered NAME.
