Can I easily change my user name in WinXP, or is it all locked up in the registry, I've made a bit of a hack of it.

TIA, gedr.

Thanks stalion, I think I might have misled you a bit, I shouldn't have said user name, I meant the first name that goes in, probably Admin. or some thing like that. The one the computer belongs to.
If you get what I mean.
Cheers, gedr.

In the Registry Editor, drill down to the place where you see
the following:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion.

In the right pane, double-click RegisteredOrganization. In the
box under Value Data, change the name or leave it blank. Double-
click RegisteredOwner. Change the name to your own. Close the
Registry Editor.
