Hi. I got this from the microsoft site, had the same issue, was easier than I thought.

1. Log in by using another administrative account.
Note You may need create a new administrative account at first.
2. Go to the C:\users\ folder and rename the sub folder with the original user name to the new user name.
3. Go to registry and modify the registry value ProfileImagePath to the new path name.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList\<User SID>\
4. Log out and log in again by using the user whose name is changed, and the user should use the pervious profile with new path name.
