If I go into C: Documents and Settings, there are 2 folders, 'All users' and 'Rich', however my name isn't 'Rich'. I've tried simply renaming the folder. However, a msg comes up saying,

'Rich is a windows folder system and is required for windows to run properly. It can not be moved or renamed'.

The weird thing is the name is correct when you go into 'user acounts'.

Does anyone know a possible way of changing it? Thanks...:confused:

If there is a user in User Accounts with that name, there has to be a folder with that name. You will have to remove the user before you can delete the folder.

The user in 'User Accounts' is called 'Mike', but the only folder in documents and settings other than 'All users' is 'Rich', so what is going on????????? There must be a way of changing Rich to Mike?

Logon as administrator and see if it will let you change it.
