user information / account?
Hello,
I recently purchased a Gateway notebook M1629. It was the display model and had the user account as RadioShack. I did figure out how to change the user account and delete the RadioShack user account.

However, I noticed when I went to install superantispyware this morning that the page that comes up during installation for the user information already has the name RadioShack in that area (it can be changed and I did).

Why is it that even after having removed/deleting the RadioShack user account and only having my name listed and I am listed as the administrator is the name RadioShack still popping up during the installation of some things. I'm pretty sure that the same thing happened the other day when I installed MS Office 2003 Professional as well.

How do I get the RadioShack name to not automatically be showing up for things like this? Why is the computer user registered as RadioShack (when they stated that nothing had been registered on this notebook). I did find some information on the computer user name and that it is located in the registry - but I'm not sure about editing the registry and how did the name RadioShack get put into the registry as the "registered user" to begin with if nothing had been registered on this notebook.
Also, how do I get the RadioShack name to not automatically be showing up for things like this? I'm guessing that I am going to have to mess with the registry for this one - does this also mean that the vista home premium with sp1 which came preinstalled on this pc has already been registered?

Any suggestions would be Greatly Appreciated.

TIA

lnjr
