I recently had to have my windows login name changes.  I have many SQL server 2005 maintenance jobs setup with my windows authenication name.  Now, I've noticed that they have failed for obvious reasons.  How do I change ownership quickly.

Go to Control panel -> Administrative tools -> services
then click properties of the sql server instance. There you will find Log On at second tab of dialog box where you can update your new windows login and password.

to find the ON I would have a select statement on the sysobjects.
