Let me guess: the tech created a user named Darlean, which set a Darlean folder in Documents and Settings. You didn?t mention wanting to change the user name, so I assume you have already used User Accounts to change the user name to Darlene. However, the D and S folder name did not change. (Microsoft says this is; ?by design;? a term many of us believe is often used as a euphemism for ?programmer goof.?) The link is still valid, even though the name has changed; anything you do under the user name Darlene will be reflected in the D and S folder named Darlean
I would say forget about trying to find registry changes; this You have two or three options, depending on whether you have XP Home or XP Pro.
First, and easiest, you can bite the bullet, and accept the incorrect spelling of the folder name. The link will be valid, so that whatever you do under the logon name Darlene should properly be reflected in the D and S folder named Darlean. This will work for either OS.
Second, you can do as Dan suggested; create a new and proper user account, copy the files, and then delete the old account name and D & S folder. But a warning: if you did change the logon name from Darlean to Darlene, you must first change it back, and then proceed as Dan suggested. Copy any Darlean files and folders to the new Darlene folder using your method of choice I generally use Windows Explorer). This method should work with either OS, but you must be logged on as an Administrator, and Darlean must be completely logged off.
Third, if you have XP Pro, you should be able to rename the D $ S folder. See the following Microsoft knowledgebase article for details.
Hope this helps ?
