windows instal error

By barrycoleman ·
Just bought new computer and had new Windows XP Pro installed. My first name is Barry, but installer made error and entered it as Larry. This bug's me and I have tried to correct the situation. Successfully changed computer name from "Larry-####" to "BARRY-OFFICE". Have used JV16 Power Tools Registry Find & Replace tool to make changes. Ran first Larry > Barry and then LARRY to BARRY. Result is that in Documents and Settings there are now 2 folders, one "Larry" and the other "Larry.BARRY-OFFICE". Is there any way, short of a total re-instal of Windows, to resolve this situation so that ALL references to "Larry" are removed from the system and registers, leaving only the reference to "Barry" and/or "BARRY-OFFICE" ?
