My copy of Windows XP Professional was registered to someone else's name when they upgraded my hard drive for me, but I want to have my name displayed as the user/login name without deleting and re-creating the account.
I've already done the entire method of:
Start>Run>regedit>HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>SOFTWARE>Microsoft>Windows NT>Current Version and edited the "RegisteredOwner", but the user name still doesn't display on the Start menu or login screen. However, it does display the correct name on the "About Windows" window when I type "winver.exe" into Run.
Also, for some reason, there is no "Change My Name" option in the User Accounts menu.
Is there a way to change it?
Thanks for any help.
