Preferred Solution: How do I edit/change the name of the owner/user of my computer?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Haha, I don't know what else to call it, but how do you change the owner where it says C:/User/Owner

Thanks

A:How do I change the owner in C:/user/owner

Hello Nick, and welcome to Vista Forums.

The only way to change the C:\Users\Owner folder name is to create a new administrator account, then delete the old C:\Users\Owner account from within the new account. Be sure to copy the contents that you want to save from the old accounts user folders into the corresponding new account's user folders to restore them to the new account.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

This picture shows how my name has been changed in User Accounts and in regedit, as displayed by running winver, but yet all my files are still found at C:\Users\Owner.
When I go to C:\Users, the Owner folder is locked and cannot be renamed even though my account type is administrator, as seen here.
How do I really change the name from Owner to a name of my choosing?

I am helping a friend clean up her PC. It is a WinXPsp2 Home edition, Pentium 4, 1.50Ghz, with 512Mb memory of which 384 Mb is available (the rest is shared for video).

When she bought the PC her then husband registered it to his name.

She now wants to remove the name of her ex-husband from the PC. I think that I have seen a way that the name of the Registered owner (as it appears when you right click on My Computer and select properties) can be changed but can't remember how it was done.

I've had a search in the registry for her ex-husband's name and it occurs numerous time in the HKEY_CURRENT_USER hive; I stopped looking at that point.

I'm comfortable with making registry changes if that is required.

Your help will be much appreciated.

4. To change the company name, do the following:

In the right pane, double-click RegisteredOrganization. Under Value data, type the name that you want, and then click OK.
5. To change the name of the registered owner, do the following:

In the right pane, double-click RegisteredOwner. Under Value data, type the name that you want, and then click OK.
6. Click Exit on the File menu to quit Registry Editor.

I recently purchased a Dell desktop for my son. I was able to change him to system administrator in the log-on area, but the previous owner's name is still in the registration properties, as well as in the info such as "c:\Documents and Settings\Previous Owner\My Documents\My Music". How is this information changed? I have a legal copy of an XP Pro upgrade. Would that allow the change to be made (and would I lose any data currently on the machine)? I would prefer to just change something in the registry, or whatever it takes. Please help!!!

Booted the computer today. Started a media player to listen to radio. Everything fine. Tried to start another program. Message box informed me Windows unable to access file.You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item. Now I cannot run any programs.

There is only one user account. I cannot create another because I cannot run Control Panels either. I cannot drag and drop. I can't even shut the computer down except through the Task Manager. I can't even find a way to boot into Safe Mode to see what I could do there. I am trying to avoid reinstalling everything. Help.

A:User Owner has no permissions

FIRST try this:Boot to your WinXP Setup CD
At the 1st window with the Repair option on the bottom Statusbar, do that to open the Repair Console
When you get to the Repair Console's Command Prompt enter CHKDSK C: /R (the R is not a typo)
Let CHKDSK do its thing, then reboot
Also, running CHKDSK from the desktop (via Start menu, Accessories, Command Prompt) by entering CHKDSK C: /F (the F is not a typo), occasionally. This should be part of your general system maintenance routine. Note that this will require a reboot to actually run.

SECOND: You ARE running an up-to-date AntiVirus program, correct?

However, When I go to save or open something on the desktop it still says C:\Documents and Settings\(the name that I used to have the computer registered to)\Desktop\ etc etc... in the navigation bar, How do I get the computer to change that?

I recently sold my Gateway laptop and the Windows 8 software was already installed with purchase.

I tried on my own to figure out and was only able to set up a separate "User" for the new owner until we can resolve.

A:How do I change Primary Account/Owner

Just make sure the new owner/login has administrative rights, have the new owner login and delete your old account. Are even better...most new laptops come with an option to restore to factory defaults. That's what I would do if it was an option.

Profiles and ComboFix and also by deleting individual files I knew were part of the viruses But I was still feeling very suspicious that I may still have something on my computer And I incidentally went into my Control Panel to the System icon and then for no reason at all checked my User Profiles and the Settings Listed were two VERY suspicious User Profiles - 40004SALE\OWNER Virus?? user profiles both with the same name quot SALE OWNER quot but created on different dates The first one was created on August and the other was created today September Obviously I did not create these myself so I feel there MUST be a security breach For some unknown reason I was able to delete the August profile but it tells me I can only Change the Profile Type of the September one but it only has the option of Local I searched the web up and down on quot SALE OWNER quot and came up with absolutely nothing I have exhausted the little expertise I have and am asking for someone to please help me I just finally want my computer back to the way it was I have reason to believe that whatever began this whole thing knocked out my connection to the router in our house It wiped out the secure connection I was running on similarily around the same time Thank you

A:Single user PC why do I need Admin + Owner + Users ?

I can appreciate your frustration, Russell. The learning curve from XP to 7 can be kinda steep. One of the issues many people first have is the increased security offered by Windows 7. As you said in your post about your XP machines, "They are all standalone PCs -- stable and they let me "in"." That was one of XP's major problems ... lots of malware was able to get in as well as the authorized user(s).

When a new 7 computer is first set up, the initial account created is an administrator account so you can make required changes to the computer (like choosing language of choice, setting computer time zone, etc.) So there always has to be at least one administrator account on a 7 machine.

But to add to the confusion, this is an "unelevated" administrator account. In other words, there are some tasks (such as running a system file checker scan [sfc /scannow] from a command prompt), that cannot be done without jumping through one more hoop. If you open a command prompt in 7 (either by typing cmd in the start menu search box or using the long way start > all programs > accessories > command prompt) you have to right-click the command prompt icon and select "Run as administrator". It's just another security feature to make it more difficult for malware to get in.

A lot of people who are the only ones using the computer leave things as is ... running with that administrator account. Nothing wrong with that if you're careful and know what sites you're visiting, what email attachments you're opening, etc. But for an extra degree of security many people operate as a standard user just because it does make it more difficult for malware to get in. This tutorial goes into more detail about the various account types.

User Account Type - Change

As far as obtaining a Windows 7 installation disk, you could check out Step 4 in this tutorial (doing a repair install of Windows 7.)

Repair Install

You could download the ISO file for your version of Windows 7, save it to desktop, then burn it to a DVD. If you ever did a repair install or a clean install, just use the Product Key on your Toshiba laptop to re-activate with Microsoft. Hope some of this helps and doesn't make things even more confusing.

I got all my files copied from the Xp slave to the vista master fine, I had to change the owner of the files to myself on the vista computer in order to copy them. Now i've done a repair install on the xp drive and its back working but now i can't access my files in xp because they now belong to myself in vista.

How can i restore original or generic access back to my xp files?

A:Files in User/Owner/AppData/Local

Hello anaron

These files are safe to delete if you wish. There are many threads here as to where they come from, some say from windows live mail or messenger and others have different views but I don't remember there been a conclusive answer. The only thing we all agreed on is that the can be safely deleted if you want to however they take up no space so can be left alone.
My advise is to leave them in the recycle bin for a few days just to make sure you have no issues.

Note: I've never tried this, and would view this as hazardous if you get it wrong.

Therefore I would strongly advise you to
a. create a disk image (everyone is strongly recommended to use disk imaging routinely here) before proceeding
b. also enable (if not enabled) system restore and create a restore point -noting sometimes difficulty with these is experienced, hence (a) as well.

Disk imaging:
Creating disk images lets you restore Windows and all your disks and partitions to a previous working state, quickly and probably without technical help.

You can recover from:
- a failed disk drive (restore to a new one)
- ransomware (which encrypts your disk)
- user error
- unrecoverable problems from failed updates to problem programs
- unbootable PC (hardware faults aside)

Images also act as a full backup- you can extract files too.

You can even use images to help you move more easily and quickly to a new PC.

Imaging can even help you sleep at night knowing you have a second chance.

Many here recommend Macrium Reflect (free) as a good robust solution and more reliable than some others. It?s
- more feature rich
- more flexible
- more reliable
than Windows Backup and Restore system images.

Boot with your xp cd [cd set as first boot device in the bios] Choose install from the first menu. The next menu will show any previous xp installs and give you the option to repair the install. Choose your original xp install and let it repair for you.

After a repair install you will need to reinstall all updates, service pack 2, etc.

You could try to Take Ownership by Elevating through Command Prompt

Start > CMD > Right Click and Run as administrator Then it will prompt for Administrator User name and Password Type that in

Then Follow this Tutorial Take Ownership of file - Vista Forums Option1 - Method 2

Hello!

I have an HP Pavillion 5000 laptop that I purchased back in 2005. It still works well and since I just purchased an updated laptop, I have decided to give the HP to my sister. I would like to edit the User Profile and erase the profile that I created for myself, but when I go to the Control Panel and click on the User Profile icon, nothing happens. It won't even open up.

What I would really like to do, is restore this computer to its "original" condition. I have the OS disks and the driver disks that came with it. None of the data on the hard drive is necessary to keep, I just want to wipe it clean. Can someone help me with this? I am running on Windows XP Home with SP2.

Thanks!

A:[SOLVED] Cannot Edit User Profiles - Give me something else?

If you have the OS disks and driver disks then pop the OS disk in (or first one if theres multiple disks) and it should walk you through it... i'm curious about the users thing though, it would be possible to create a new user then wipe the old one but it may be better (although more time consuming) to wipe the computer clean, with a clean OS your sister can start a fresh...

P.s. if it's an XP disk then you can put the disk in whilst the OS is running and it will autorun and pop up a dialogue.. it's quite simple though just follow the instructions.... if it doesnt run whilst you're logged in then you may have to restart and boot your pc from the CD... (Go into your BIOS or boot options [usually by hitting a F1-12 key when] and change the first boot medium to your CD drive)....

Post back if you have problems with this

cheers,
Jamey

Can't uninstall programs, can't edit useraccounts, powerplans are missing and can't run sysinternals process explorer, can't see the properties of my network adapter and i can't even change anything in the microsoft firewall. I click on any option but nothing happens.

Hello Christian,

It appears that you may need to refresh Windows 8 at boot.

If that still doesn't help, then you may need to reset Windows 8 instead.

I recently bought an Acer AX3810 with Vista 7 Home Premium 64 bit from the widow of my neighbor. I had transferred all his personal files and copied all the photographs to an external hard drive for her then deleted all the files using "Eraser". I cannot seem to be able to delete the previous owner as administrator. His file has a little padlock symbol on it. I changed his name to mine in the "Manage user accounts" but no matter, it is still "him" that is logged on. I created a new account in my name and then changed the status from standard to administrator but he is still "there". I feel like I am being haunted. Any ideas?

Having just learned from an OLD post here that renaming a user account apparently doesn't change the order in which the corresponding logon icons appear at startup -- due to the order being apparently determined by when each folder was originally created, which was when this computer was first opened back in 2011 -- I want to be able, after creating a new user account, to migrate data from the account whose name I changed. I'd been previously suggested to try User Profile Wizard from Forensit.com... would this be a good idea, or can you suggest something different?

A:Cannot Edit Change By Browse the Save To Download to String Win 8.1

It just shows you are never too stupid to learn !  I've been using Firefox for 10 or 15 years and until today I thought the choices were 'Downloads' or 'Always ask' ! Since I save different types of files in different places i have always used 'Always ask'.
 
Are you having any other odd behaviour in Firefox - pop-ups, re-directions to unexpected web-sites, failure to go to web-sites ?  Have any of your security products ever suggested something has got in ?  If you try the 'always ask' option, does a downloaded file go where you tell it to ?
 
If it was just that the path was changing from time to time, I would put that down as an oddity in Firefox. It is your statement that you can't change the present path that raises concerns. As a first step I would suggest a full Malwarebytes and Avast system scan to see if they throw up anything.

When I was setting up my computer for the first time, I misspelled my user name. When I go to My Computer > Local Disk [C:] > Users, I am unable to change the name of my User file.

I have corrected how the user name appears when logging in, via User Accounts, but this "source" seems un-editable. It appears in several places, when I install new programs etc. and I know that there must be a way to fix this.

How can I change the name of the User file folder?

Any and all suggestions welcome, please and thank you!

I think I may already know the answer to this, but if I send someone an Edit Link to a folder on my OneDrive, is it possible for them to upload files to that folder? If not, what does the Edit option do exactly?

I appears they must sign in to use the Upload option but I do not have anyone right now who is not on my network to test for me. I also used the Do not need a Microsoft Account option in the link.

Overall, does OneDrive seem to accommodate such type of usage? I know this has probably been covered, but the need has just arisen for me and I haven't seen a post addressing such a requirement.

Thanks.

Just got a new notebook with Vista Ultimate installed. Under User Accounts it lists "All Users", "Default User" and "Owner". I'd like to change Owner to my name. Is that possible? I tried right-clicking it but Rename isn't an option. The computer was set up in the store I bought it and I suppose that's what they put in. My initial log-in as Administrator did not require a password. I've since changed that and I now log in with my name as an Administrator and using a password. But my name isn't listed as one of the Users. I remember going into the Registry in previous versions of Windows and changing things like this but am reluctant to do so in Vista because I know so little about it.
 

A:Changing User folder name from "Owner" to me

The best way to do this , is to "Make a new admin account", Ste up your email and make the system settings that you want. Copy all of the data files, favorites and etc from the "Owner" to your New account. After you are sure that you have copied all of your data, delete the old account and files.

When a new user is created in Windows, either the first user when Windows is installed or any user later on, and the new user has signed in to Windows first time, the user profile is created and named. Any later username change does not change the name of the user profile.

An example, if my ex-wife had created a user account for me on a Windows computer she had most probably named it as "Idiot". If I then later on changed my username on that computer from "Idiot" to "Kari", my profile had remained as "Idiot".

Basically, the easiest way to change this is to create a new user account and profile with the preferred name, copy the personal files and folders from C:\Users\Wrong_Username folder to C:\Users\New_Username, and delete the user Wrong_Username completely.

In your case now you can try the method told in this tutorial: User Profile Folder - Change User Account Folder Name

2)  If it looks like this:  http://tinypic.com/r/2n7igd5/9.  This is the default setting in windows 10 (and others I believe).  Even when you create a new folder with nothing in it, this will happen.  I don't understand it myself but it does not mean the files / folders are read only.  Perhaps someone else can explain it better.  I always end up just using NTFS security.
 
3) Don't know about this one

In order to get rid of the *.zip folder view in WinExplorer on a64bit WIn7 system I tried to delete (according to some tutorials) the Registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Classes\CLSID\{E88DCCE0-B7B3-11d1-A9F0-00AA0060FA31}

Unfortuantely this is NOT possible immediately.
When I try to delete it then I got a popup

Cannot delete.... Error while delting key.

Ok, so I tried to get ownership of this key by right clicking-->Permissions
then selecting "Users" and enabling "Full control" the "apply" button but I got here:

Unable to save permission changes on ....
Access denied"

Why?

This last error comes for all Owners: SYSTEM, Administrators, trusted Installers.

I have Admin rights. So what more do I need to get ownership?

Even worse: Every change in owner is rejected as well.

Hello Peter,

Are you logged in as an administrator?

In addition, you might see if the tutorial below may help with this.

Hope this helps for now,

Will I run into any problem if I change the Registered Owner (and Registered Company) for my system? (to fix a typo!)

The method is described here:
Registered Owner and Organization - Vista Forums


I did see that some Registry installer sections for non-MS products have picked up the current Registered Owner, so will contact those companies separately.

A:Q: Ok to change "Registered owner"?

Nothing will happen, expect that you own all the files and can edit them now.

Getting a new computer and husband will get this one. How do I go about changing the sign in so it has no 'connection' with my new one. I want him to have his own Microsoft account. Would switching to Local Account and then back to Microsoft Account let me accomplish this?

A:Upgraded Windows 10 computer going to new owner

Ya you could do that, what I would do is switch back to a Local account. Then make a new local account for your husband. Switch to that account, and then delete your former local account, but do it from the new account. Make sure you save your files old account files to the new desktop.

Remember that creating a new account brings up the Settings tile to New Users. Maker sure you add strictly a Local account with no phone number or MS account - You can create the MS account later. Don't even bother with a password, this is just for a quick setup.

Once you are logged into the new account, and before you switch make sure you assign Administrator access to it in Control Panel (Manage Another Account, Change Account Type of the new account to Admin) or else you won't be able to manage the old account.

Then Log Into the new, manage the old, delete it with the option to save all of your user data to a desktop folder. Easy Peasy.

Hi,
I have a Windows 8.1 system on a lap top that was used by a former employee. Her name was still on user name and I couldn't change it without Admin privileges (otherwise was asking for a smart card). Found out how to get in to admin in safe mode with Net
User Admin yes- then discovered that the old log in and information / desk top is no longer available. The docs are under Users (old employee's name) in C drive, but the docs and settings no longer show up and the admin log in is the only one available - no
option to change users.
When I went in and said Net User Admin no - thinking if I disabled admin user it would go back to the old log in -  there was no log in available at all.

Help?

Howdy All -
I'm thinking I'm not the first nor the last to have MS trick me into changing my User Name from Local to (in my case) an outlook.com email account. Now I'm forced to sign in every time I log on. And FWIW, I prefer to be fully in charge of my devices.
-
I surely would appreciate some guidance on the proper way to switch back to a Local User and disassociate my computer from outlook.com. Many thanks in advance for reading this and all replies.

Best,
