How to change User Identification in Windows XP

Hello!

I bought this computer I work on for my mother while she was still working here in the USA. Then she moved last year, and since then I have been using at my University. What I need to do is to take her name (Kimberly) off the user settings and put my name (Panos). The way it is now, when I write comments in Adobe Acrobat lets say it registers her name as the user instead of mine and it is embarassing bc I am not her.

How do I do this...

Hello enzymemedia =)

No easy way, so the best practise is to create a new user with ur choice name and then transfer the present user data to the new one !!

Can you not create a new user under your name ?

For applications , you need to reinstall them and put ur name

I believe Acrobat runs under the current logged in user.  There is a place in Acrobat that allows you to create an identity.  (View > Preferences > Identity), but the user is hardcoded in there when it runs.  You will need to do at the other experts are recommending to really take care of the problem.
