    Hi...Recently, I had a new hard drive put into my computer. The people that did this job also installed Win98se. I noticed that my full name is listed as the registered owner of Win98. I have no problem with that, except that I have noticed that certain spyware has my full name listed in its spyware. To make it harder for the spyware to use my identity, I would like to remove my name and, perhaps, just have my initials in the registration line of Win98. Is this possible and how can I do this?
    Thanking you in advance.
