I recently had repairs done to my Xp system following a severe crash. The folks did a great job on the repairs, but they actually input my name wrong on the start up and all of the Windows prorgams. Is this a big deal to fix?
Thx

You can't change the folder name "C:\Documents and Settings\[your username]" unless you do a full re-install.

No its not a big deal really, but if you did want to change your name for your login, please follow Keith's instructions.



I do know how you feel with taking your computer in to be fixed and they do other things other then what you told them to do or they do things incorrectly.
