    Hi all!
    I took delivery of an HP notebook for my brother that came with Vista Home basic installed. The wholesaler used my name for the installation so it appears under "C:\Users". For understandable reasons I would like to change this name to my brother's name. How can I do that?

    I've changed the "User Account" name to my brother's name but my name still appears at the C:\Users\[my name]...

    Please help.

    You could create a new profile with the desired name and give it Admin status and delete the old one.
