Default How do I change default username?

sponsored links
I have recieved a computer running windows xp professional service pack two recently. I have managed to change the name who the computer is registered to to mine and eliminate the company name. But my question is how to change the default username. And I'm not talking the name that you can change in the control panel. It's located at this directory: C:\Documents and Settings\"needs changing." When i try to rename the file i get "needs changing" is a Windows system folder and is required to run properly. It cannot be removed or renamed. Can I get around this and change the name to my own?

Well, that can be done easily.
First, fire up the Windows XP Mode, the Microsoft tailored virtual image of Windows XP Professional SP3 in essence.
Get into Control Panel, and fire up User Accounts.
Create a new account.
Then, open Run in start menu, type the following command within the dialogue.
control userpasswords2
Remove the default user account, User.
Restart the virtual machine, and the next time it start up, you will see such prompt.
Enter your username and password.
Voila! Who said that there is no easy way to change user account for Windows XP Mode, huh?
