this I couldnt find:
When I want to change the name I entered during the install of xp I cant seem to change it.
example: I entered the name Pilot.
Now when u go to c: Documents and settings..u see the folder named Pilot.
I want to change that because it also sends cookies to websites with the name pilot.
I was able to change the name of the cookies, but now I'm just curious how to change the name Pilot.
so if any of u ppl know..pls help:)

I'm sure there's a registry hack you can do, so wait for that too. I use CustomizerXP, just do a search for that program. Here's a screenshot where to change it using that program:

Dont work

Thanks for the help but I tried several programs like u said,
but still that map name is the same..try change it with the program u mentioned, and then go take a look at c: documents and setting...U'll see that the name PILOT is still there.

You're talking about user account. Go to Control Panel> User Accounts. Remove the account and then just delete that folder... this is assuming of course that you're not logged in under that account and you're either working under the account "Administrator," or an account with administrative rights.

tried that before and had to do system restore to get back to my original settings...so lets skip that one:)

What you're saying is that you're actively using that account? I guess you can try renaming the folder, might work, might not.

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
