Can I Rename?

I have just managed to change the user name of a previous user to my own quite successfully.

I have now stumbled across another folder in:

c: > documents and settings

with the previous occupiers name all over it.

When I tried to rename the file, a message proclaimed that this was a 'Windows System File and cannot be renamed'.

Could anybody tell me if there is a way around this problem?
It's gonna bug me otherwise. All I need to do is change his name to mine....

Thanks

Just do what he said. Change your account...make a backup of anythhing you want to keep though that is in the folders with the old user name.

Yep, fare enough, I appreciate that...

But wouldn't I lose the programs that have been installed under his username??

There's a few bits and bobs on here that I would like to keep.

or am I making things more complicated than they actually are? :rolleyes:

Thanks for the help though.
