Hello. Is there a way to change the name found in 'C:\Documents and Settings\Username'?

I sent my computer for repairs about a month ago and the person who fixed it decided to be funny and changed the name to something...not so nice. I've tried to contact this person but to no avail.

Google searches didn't help much beyond changing the Start Menu name in the User Accounts found in the Control Panel.

Thanks in advance.

Have you tried to right click and select rename to rename the folder?

Yes, it says it's a system folder of Windows that cannot be moved or renamed.
