Ramesh..... well thanks for that information even though it is after the
fact. I eventually figured it out after first changing the "Registered
Owner" name in the Registry, which I also needed to do but hoped it would
accomplish the other too, but didn't. So after first changing every single
instance of my own name in the Registry with my client's name, which didn't
work either, in fact it messed up the account when logging in.... I tried
exactly what you suggested... i.e., first renaming the original account,
creating a new account with my client's name and then deleting that original
renamed account. PERFECT. Of course, all the configuration settings I had
done on the original account had to be redone. But at least now everything
is as it should be.
Thanks for the suggestion nonetheless..... now I know. hehe

I've changed the "User Account" name to the client's name but my still
appears as the "registered owner", assuming that is what the name under
