You can login as any user other than "Owner", such as "administrator" (built-in Windows account). Once you do that, go to Start -> Run -> type in "control userpasswords2"

When the dialog box comes up, select the user name you want to modify, in your case "Owner". Once you do that, select Properties. The primary box will say user name with your username in a text box. Change from Owner to whatever you desire. Login with new name, all set.

Ok i did that, now i have no admin prilages...i want to be the admin....but have it say "Danny"
You can adjust that in the same place, instead of the General Tab (where you changed your username), use the group Management tab.

Either that or you can Right click on my computer, go to "manage" then browse local users and groups, same place.

well now im a guest and i cant get out of that...
If you logon with an account that has administrative rights, like the "administrator" account, you should be able to do this. Are you logged on as yourself right now or the administrator account?

Have you logged in with the re-named account, and then logged off? Try that as well to finish the re-naming process.
