    I'm giving my PC to another person & want to remove my name as the owner under system properties. How do I do this?
    Many thanks,
    Bevysr

    This can be done via the registry. Be carefull. Start/Run and type regedit. Go to this KEY: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion and modify "Registered Owner key by double clicking it.

    You might also want to do a search for your name in the registry, Other programs will be registered to you.
