Even though I have changed name & orgainisation in the usual regisrty key place viz.,HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion, I cannot seem to chnage the previous owner USERNAME.
HIs name appears in C:\Documents and Settings also - but cannot delete, as it says it's a Windows  system folder. Changed his name also in the usual My Computer Properties AND deleted his profile also (Although it meant I lost my emails).
