Windows Vista Profile

How can i change the profile name of my administrator account, without
creating a new one? I'm talking about the name we got to fill in when we
iniciate the Vista for the first time.

Thank you

1) Start > Control Panel > User Accounts > Change your Account Name.

2) Start > Right-click Computer > Manage > Local Users and Groups >
Users > Right-click the desired account > Rename.

Bear in mind that both of these methods will change only the user name
that appears on the Welcome Screen and the Start Menu. These methods
will not rename the user's profile folders within C:\Users\. These are
protected systems files and cannot be easily renamed. If this doesn't
suit you, your best option would be to simply create a new user account,
copy the settings from the current account to it, and then delete the
old account.
