As a recommended security measure I have changed the Administrator logon name to XXXXX, but since doing this I am getting an Event error in the Application log saying Event ID: 1053 Cannot determine the User or Computer name, Group Policy Aborting.

Unfortunately it doesn't say which computer or user it is complaining about, but it only started doing it after I changed the Admin login name.

Is there any way to find out which computer or user it is complaining about.

what is the correct process to change the login name of the Administrator to something else.
