My problem is, a few years back when I purchased my main development machine I made the huge, horrible, stupid mistake of just using the Administrator account as my account. It has bitten me time and again in more ways then I ever thought possible. More than once I’ve attempted to find a way to rectify this without having to spend a week completely redoing everything… I’m looking for a shortcut!!
‘Everything’?? Understand, I am not lazy, I’m a 3D animator/CG artist and my entire studio lives on this system -- I have well over 204 programs installed -- this is just the folder count in Program Files -- MS Office, Adobe and others have as many as a dozen programs in their respective folders. These all have user files in the user directory and I’m guessing entries in the registry which are tied to the Administrator user, perhaps links that will be broken and Lord knows what else.
Does anyone know how I can get the Administrator user to another user name without losing the setups and customization of all my programs as well as other things I probably not even thinking about.
