Go to the windows icon (bottom right) then, right click 'my computer' then, left click 'change settings' then, left click 'change' then, change the computer name and follow the on screen prompts asking you to restart.

This will only work if you are an administrator of the machine that you are trying to change the name of.

Cheers
