changed my username now can not logon remote

Specs: Windows 7
Okay, I had admin account and recently changed my name of the account, that is, actually the username to log on to my pc. Now I tried to remotely log on using the credentials with new username then it is complaining it can not login.

I tried to explicitly put my user name in the 'Allow log in through Remote Desktop Service ' of local security policy in control panel->admin section.
I can add other users there whom I did not change the username but when I enter my changed username it is complaining that it can not find that object.

It certainly seems to be a subtle win7 bug to me. Has anyone encountered this and solved it before? Thanks!

Does not make any sense. How would it help to solve my problem? Are you replying to correct post?

Using remote desktop connection from some other remote computer running a suitable rdp client?

Try the old name. If you simply changed the name on the account the data usually stays under the old users name for some things.

What you should have done was to create a new admin and then use it. Well, actually you should never log on to an admin user's account since it is a security issue. Always use a standard user and if needed open as admin or run as admin to do task.
