That last part is a bit harsh don't you think? I mean, NOWHERE in the
original question did the OP mention "User name"...only "my name"...
Please read the question before answering.

As for changing to your correct name...depends on which "name" you
are desiring a change. If just the "User" name, the Jay's method works.
If it is the "Registered Owner" name, then you can follow Col's method,
OR, while running as Adminstrator, fire up Regedit from the Run command,
look for all references to the mistyped name, and change each to the
desired name.
