    Hold down the left shift key while logging off and keep it held down until the system pops-up the logon screen. At that point, type in the new name and password.

    Don't hit esc or click cancel or go away for any length of time, as it will proceed to logon with the old user.

    After you are through and logoff again, you will get an error message and you will have to re-enter the auto login info at the logon screen.
