Change W2000 Default User

When I had systems sent to the manufacturer to reimage harddrive, the technician there changed to Default User to "any1".
I need to change this to "POS" so that it defaults to "pos" on boot.  Otherwise I have to have a keyboard on the system, allow it to fail, and retype over "any1".

Where do I change this?  Simply renaming user does not affect.

Thanks

Default user? Do you mean the local administrator or the last displayed user? Or are you talking about an autologon user?

Sounds like you mean you want to change the user it is auto-logging on as.  You'll need to change values the registry key HKLM\Software\Microsoft\WindowsNT\WinLogon.  Values to change as required:
DefaultDomain
DefaultUserName
DefaultPassword

If you want to disable the auto-logon altogether, set the value AutoAdminLogon to 0.

If you don't want to manually edit the registry, I think that TweakUI (from Microsoft) will give you a GUI where you can change the autologon details.
