Need More Information....

The operating system being used?.. ON a domain or not? Have you already tried opening the Control Panel-User Accounts and changing the user name there?

Hope this helps and let us know more.

I need to change my username

Hi, i need to change my username or delete the account and create a new one if its not possible anymore, i figured i would try replying directly to you before i attempt to start a new thread. I believe i got my username auto assigned in a way in 2010 when i signed in using a google account and I changed the email adress hoping to have the option then to change username but to no avail. I guess its not a big deal to delete the account if i need to or if its inconvenient to change it but I wanted to try, please let me know, you can reply directly to my email assuming you are able to based on the context of this thread. Thanks in advance.
