    Chang User/Owner name

    How can the User/Owner name on a computer be changed. A friend is selling her used computer and she wants to get her name off the system?

    If she is selling the system -- and it may have files on it that she does not want someone to find -- a disk format and re-installation might be something she should consider.

    Hi Leif,
    That worked fine but....... - I thot this would also change the LOGOFF reference. When I click on START, the menu opens and her name is still listed in the LOGOFF section. How do I get rid of that? Thanks in advance.
