Maybe a long short, but how do I change my 'XP user name'?

    Now, before you rush and answer - I have looked in Control Panel users, but it does not change it there.

    Whenever I installed Windows, at the last part is asks for a Username for Windows, think you have to type one.

    Anyway, I accediently spelt it wrong :rolleyes: And now my name, on logon appears incorrect, In XP Users Accounts it is spelt correct, but that does not affect the 'logon' name.

    Surely there must be a way to chang the name I put in at XP installation?

    Cheers :)
