I guess I don't understand. Could you please clarify? What is wrong, and what do you want?

Thanks, and sorry for my misunderstanding.

If I understand you corrctly, you want to change a username. The question is, do you want to change your system username, or do you want to change the "SYSTEM" username?

If you want to change "SYSTEM", then you cant. That user account is hard coded into Windows and is used for certain low-level operations that requires even higher access than Administrator.

If you want to change your own user name, do the following:
  1. Click the Start Orb
  2. Click "Control Panel"
  3. Click "User Accounts and Family Safety"
  4. Click "User Accounts"
  5. Click "Change your account name" (You may need to respond to a UAC prompt)
  6. Type the desired account name in the box provided
  7. Click "Change Name"

You have to set up a new account to change the users name, in the way that you suggest.
You can easily transfer all your settings etc, from one users account to another.

Are Unix systems more secure than Windows systems?
Lately, I've heard some people say that the Unix code is more secure than the Windows code and that the Windows code has many holes and bugs in it. Before, I always thought Unix systems (for example, Mac) were less likely to get infected by viruses only because they had a lower market share....

32 & 64 bit (2 Systems)?
When you buy Windows 7 they will give you 2 disks. 32 & 64 bit. I posted today about my interactive CD's not working and I think it is because I'm running a 64 bit windows 7.
