    Hi,
    Please advise. Is it safe to alter the windows user name/organization using the registry (regedit) and change its name? Considering I've been using it for over a year now. my friend who assembled my computer registered "user" as its name. i have xp pro. thanks

    It's safe, as I've done it before.
