Windows 7: Renaming user profile

Renaming user profile

When trying to rename a user account it will only change the welcome screen name and start menu name. It will not rename the Users folder name, and probably other instances of the user account name on the computer.

What is the best way to rename the user profile?

I tried creating a new account with the desired name and after restarting the computer the name showed up as NAME_2.
