    We're using Win XP Pro. We just sold our computer and instead or reinstalling windows all over again we just want to change the name on the C:\Documants and Settings folder. There are two folders there. One says 'All Users' and the other folder has our name. How/where do we change that (second) folders name ?

    We tried to directly change it but it wouldn't let us :(

    Frank are you saying that if we make a second account with the correct name, that we can then delete the first account, or are you saying that we will then have two accounts? :confused:

    I think that applies to normal folders, and not the "Documents and Settings" folder.
