I want to change my underlying user name. Not just the display. I'm only user, admin. Is there a way to do this in the registry?
thanks,

I changed the login display name, but the underlying admin name is still what is displayed in some apps, like winpop. I want to change that name. I thought about adding another admin user and deleting the current one, but seems like when I did this before I ended up with the "deleted" user still in the Documents and Settings folder, just not displayed in a logon.
So that's why I was thinking change it in the registry.

i think you can do this in gpedit.msc (start -> run -> gpedit.msc)
Computer Config -> windows settings -> security settings -> local policys -> security options -> Accounts: Rename adminstator account

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
