Sharepoint 2010 giving errors after renaming the Administrator account.

We have a Sharepoint 2010 server which has been running just fine until we changed our domain administrator account name from Administrator to another name.  Now I am able to log into sharepoint and access and create/modify tasks, but search does not work and I am unable to use the Central Administration page to change the sharepoint account settings.

If I use Sharepoint Central Administration and go to Security > Managed Accounts, I see our new administrator account listed (it is the only thing listed) but if I click "Edit" and try to save the settings or even create a new managed account, I receive this error:
"The specified user or domain group was not found."

I am also receiving this error when I attempt to search within sharepoint:
"Internal server error exception:

Troubleshoot issues with Microsoft SharePoint Foundation.

Correlation ID: e1623651-8a30-48f6-899e-494c7e10a860"

If I try to access the Search Application through Central Administration, I receive the
"The specified user or domain group was not found" error message.

Can I use the SPConfig tool to make sure everything is using the new account name properly?

Did you make the Admin account your farm admin account?  Meaning, is the admin account running the SharePoint Timer service and the Central Admin app pool?

OAC TechnologyProfessional NerdsAuthor Commented:
Yes, the sharepoint timer service and central admin app pool is using the new admin name

Ok.  Did you just change the display name, or the actuall account name?

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Thanks, that got me a little further.  Search is still not working, but I'm no longer getting "The specified user or domain group was not found" error.  When I run the configuration wizard, it crashes at the Search Services with this error in the log file:

Exception: System.InvalidCastException: Unable to cast COM object of type 'Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Administration.MSSITLB.CGatheringManagerClass' to interface type 'Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Administration.MSSITLB.IGatherManagerAdmin3'.

I'm guessing you set this admin account as your Search Service and App Pool account as well?

If you go into Central Admin - Security - Service Accounts, can you change your account for Windows Service SharePoint Server Search, and also (if applicable) Service Application Pool - whatver your search is.
