All you have done by changing the account name is just that - you have
changed the externally visible login and display name for the account
object. Everything behind that account such as folder names and registry
information remains as was when it was first created.
The ideal solution would be to create a new account and then install the
relevant software under that account (obviously if you want to use the same
name then first rename the current account to something else)
