So it shows the changed name in system properties?
Could you tell me what you did step by step?
If I use a third party info tool, it shows the new name, but sys properties and CMD ( hostname, ipconfig etc ) show old name.

To change for one system, the easiest way would be to go to Control Panel - System - Advanced System Settings - Computer Name tab - Click on Change button and rename the computer name to a new name click OK and reboot the system.
This is a pretty straight forward method.
I will use it on multiple systems. sysdm doesnt run.
