I have Windows XP Home Editon... when I first got it I registered and applied my nickname onto my profile. Now I have a project I need to do and my nickname keeps showing in the command prompt and I want to change to my given first name, I've already changed my nick to my given name as registered owner and also my documents and settings, when I checked the command prompt my nick is still showing, was I suppose to restart for the change to be in effect after I changed it in the documents and settings? or is there another way? Thanks in advance for your guidance.
