Re: User folder name won't change.
What you are seeing is the default behavior. Regardless of the name change,
it's almost impossible to change all of the thousands of registry entries,
folders, and other pointers that are associated with a users account name.
The only solution is to create a new user account, copy all of the folder
and settings to the new user account, and then deleate the original account.
