I have created a new group policy to change the name of Administrator to xxxxxx, as described on the Microsoft website.

I can access the server from home, but when I use my RDC link with the username Administrator it still lets me logon, so do I have to reboot the server for it to take effect.

You shouldn't have to, no.

You may want to reboot and log on once with the new account to configure the profile now.

Yes you were correct, as I just tried to login using RDC and it wouldn't let me until I changed the user name, I obviously didn't leave it long enough for the changes to filter into AD
