Windows 7: Error in User Accounts

Error in User Accounts

I opened up my new Samsung Series 3 computer for the first time. I made a spelling mistake when I had to choose my account name. After Windows finished installing i made a new account with the right name and i deleted the old. But if I right-click on a file, choose properties and open the tab Security (Sikkerhed in danish) I get this: https://www.dropbox.com/s/kz8px9nvge...Unavngivet.png Why is it Pete-pc(that's the fail name)\Peter Stidsen (the new account)?

If i look in C:\Users the only folders are Shared files ("Delte filer" in danish) and Peter Stidsen: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/21887805/Unavngivet.png

You most likely made username Pete when installing Windows 7. It created Pete-pc as computer name. You want to change the computer name?

Before deleting an account, one should delete all folders assigned to the account.

you can boot up as an administrator, navigate to C:\Users\here the old account name, delete everything you can find there.

I never, never go to another location to view forum-related files.

Please use following procedure to post snapshots, etc.

to determine current name and to change current name of your COMPUTER.
WIN | type POWERSHELL | do NOT hit ENTER |
keycombo CTRL + SHIFT + ENTER |
keycombo ALT + Y

type following and hit enter key:
(gwmi Win32_computersystem).name

that will show the present name.

now to change the name,for example to SchnickleFritz
(gwmi Win32_computersystem).rename ("SchnickleFritz")

to see the new name:

you can now type EXIT to exit powershell

(gwmi Win32_computersystem).name


Oh yes WIN = key with microsoft logo on top

keycombo ALT + Y is for Yes in UAC popup. But probably not in Danish!!! Yes and No are different in all languages!

True.

Thanks.

Most likely J for Ja.

I'll bet Peter has an excellent command of the English language, certainly better than my Danish.

Peter,
Have a nice holiday.

When you get a chance then run CMD.EXE and execute the following two command lines.

wmic useraccount list full /format:table > %userprofile%\desktop\UserAccountsFull.txt

wmic sysaccount get Domain,LocalAccount,Name,SID,Status /format:table > %userprofile%\desktop\SystemAccounts.txt

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
You might need to replace %userprofile% with c:\brugere\"Peter Stidsen".

You can run cmd.exe and type
SET
which will list all of the environment variables.

Here's what mine look like, to give you an idea of what to look for as equivalent to userprofile:
