Windows 7: Laptop help

Laptop help

I was given a lightly used laptop & need advice on reconfiguration.
The laptop has 1 user as Admin. I'm going to make 2 new users, 1 Admin. which will seldom be used & the other as Standard which will usually be used. Then delete the Admin. from the past owner. Even if there is a way to just rename the existing Admin., I think this will be better; am I correct?

But I'd like some advice on the attached pic. Can I rename the C: w/o there being any problems?
I think I need to contact Toshiba to find out what the Q: is, why can I not access it & can I get rid of it?

DO NOT rename C: leave it alone. Q is part of Microsoft Office 2010. These 2 links will tell you all about it.
