There is a number of places in the Registry showing Registered Owner entries - for example, each constituent part of MS Office will have a separate entry. How can you see an owner in filename extensions?

I have noticed it mainly when I download a file or software/drivers and it is sent to my download file when it shows the path it has the old registered owners name in that file extension.

Thanks for your help

I think you mean file Path?

You will have to create another User account, name it what you wish, then migrate to that user account. Once you are happy with the new account, you can delete the old account.

Even though you changed the user account name, it cannot change the original folder name under Documents and Settings.
