Rename built in administrator account?

I just got a netbook that has 7 Home Premium x64. How do I rename the administrator account?

I've already enabled it, but gpedit.msc, secpol.msc and lusrmgr.msc don't work with 7 Home Premium.

Thanks ryo. I've already looked at that page, but none of those methods work with 7 Home Premium.

simple trick to do that. you can create new account and make that account policy group administrator.

edit : you can make more than one administrator account.
