User name in user accounts different nam than the user name in C:u
I changed the user of a Vista Business computer. The name in user accounts
was changed but the user listed in C:users is still the old one. There is
only one user on this machine. For example, when I go to user accounts "Ron"
is the displayed user. But when I go to the C drive under users it is
C:users/Rebecca the old user name. Has the correct files in it, but cannot
change Rebecca to Ron. When I tried to delete it, it said it was trying to
delete "Ron" when the delete confirm window popped up. Any suggestions.

Hello,

this is normal behavior - you can change the user name, but not it's folders
in Users.
I'd try creating a new user with the correct name and copy the necessary
files to that user.

Greetings,
