In the "Log off XXXX" message, the XXXX part does not come from the registry.  It is the name of the currently logged on user.  To change it go into the Control panel and go to the password applet.  Click on "Change Windows Password".  For the old password dont enter anything.  Now for the new password you must put something, whatever you want.  This will force the logon dialog to come up next time you reboot.  Now after rebooting when the login dialog comes up - enter whatever you want for your new username, but dont put a password.  From this point on your username will stay the same.  Hope this helps
