    I recently got a laptop from a Rental place ( stupid, I know) and the computer is Registered to them. Do I keep it that way or can I change it to my own? Is it important? And if I happened to change it, would I lose the software that's on mycomputer like NTI CD and DVD maker that is registered to them? Because I happen to like that...also..if I did...would it change how I got a wireless network signal...because I get one now....would that change? PLEASE HELP!!!

    Not knowing what version of Windows is somewhat "limiting" in being able to provide any useable help.

    Did you rent the computer or purchase it (the matter is unclear in your post).

    Did all disks for the installed software come with the computer? (if not you do not own the software)

    I have a similar question, so I'm wondering what actually was the solution to your question? Did you figure out how to change the name to which your computer is registered?
