When a user account is created, there will be a user profile associated with that user account which is created under the Documents and Settings folder in the C:\ folder. This copies information from the Default User profile and brands it with the name of the user account.
For example, you create a user account User1. When User1 logs into the machine for the first time, Windows will copy the settings from the Default User profile (located at C:\Documents and Settings\Default User) and save those settings in a profile for User1 as follows:
C:\Documents and Settings\User1
Even if you rename the User1 user account to User2, the profile and associated registry settings are permanently branded with the original information. Therefore after renaming User1 to User2, the profile still exists at:
C:\Documents and Settings\User1
The account has been renamed, but the profile information will still reflect User1, this can get confusing. You will see this when you log in and open up the command prompt, the command line will read C:\Documents and Settings\User1 even though the account has been renamed, the profile will reflect the original username associated with the profile.
What you want to do is logon with an Administrator account and create a NEW user account to reflect the desired username, continuing the example, User2. Then log off and login as the NEW user. This will create the appropriate profile in the C:\Documents and Settings\ folder for User2. Log off User2.
Log back in with an Administrator account. Then copy the profile settings from User1 to the profile for User2. You can copy profile settings through the System Applet | Advanced tab. While logged in with an Administrator account, copy the profile for User1 to the profile for User2 as follows:
Start >> right-click My Computer >> Properties OR Start >> Control Panel >> System
This will open the System applet. Navigate to the Advanced tab, then click Settings under the User Profiles section. Highlight the profile for User1 and select Copy to. Click the Browse button and navigate to the profile for User2 and click OK twice to copy the profile from User1 to User2. You should get a Warning message informing you that the information will be deleted and overwritten, click OK to proceed.
