HaHaHaHaHaHaHa - that's a good one. Every time I go to the Microsoft website to find some particular information, I end up spending about 30 or 45 minutes going all over their place and if I am lucky, then I find it.
Originally I had the default Administrator account and the guest user account, but I wanted to rename them. I read a few articles that said you can rename them but when I went through the menu options and there was nothing there.
When I asked a friend of mine about it ( he was one of the first consumers to use XP ) - he didn't know how to do it and thought it was not possible. So he created 2 new account ( administrator and guest ) and copied everything over. Well this caused Windows Activation to become active again, so I had to call Microsoft to fix it. ( Aparently, XP thought there was a new hardware configuration because I had updated the drivers a few months back. ) The old guest user account was disabled and the old Administrator account would only appear if you turned the Welcome Screen off and you had to type the account name and password in. ( I have know forgotten this password so I can no longer access the original Administrator account. )
Well, 2 days after this happened, I re-read an article on Windows XP Security and it tells you how to rename the accounts!! So, I went through all that hell for nothing!!
Last week I installed XP on a new hard drive and during the installation it tells you what to name your ( Administrator ) account. If you check your accounts it lists your account ( Computer Administrator ), the guest user account and the default Administrator account ( which does not show up on the Welcome Screen ).
You should password protect the 2 Administrator accounts ( and don't forget them!! ) I also removed the sharing option on "My Documents" so anyone login using the guest account can't view or access my files.
