Specs: Windows XP
When it is an emergency and I have to bring a store bought computer into the network, I frequently need to change it's name to the one it is replaceing. I always get an error that the name is already logged on or cant have two users . The other computer is always in the trash bin by that time and not on the network. Sometimes a day later I can change it with no problem, sometimes if I unplug the network cable for three hours I can change it. Does anyone know a way to get it done NOW and go home before 9pm Thanks guys.

Your XP Help File (See Start button) tells you how to do this... just type in "Changing Compuetr Name" in the search field and all will be revealed.
