Windows 7: Issues Renaming Computer

Windows 7 Pro 64
Issues Renaming Computer

I just built a new Windows 7 Pro 64 bit system and after the initial install decided to rename the system from Office2 to Image. After setting up the remote settings, creating a password, and sharing the drives, I tried remoting in from the other computers. Each attempt says the user-name or password is invalid. This is wrong. I created another user account and that works fine. Seems that Office2 is still present on this new computer. I've attached a screen shot of the Advance User Settings as well as network settings. I've also just discovered that I can't see the hard drives on this machine remotely.

On one Google search I saw advice to rename the user profile and make changes to the registry. What I found is that there was no option to rename the profile. Anyway, any advice would be greatly appreciated. I'm not sure if this is one issue or two.
