When your account was first setup it had the name of "User" - then, at some point, it was changed to "Alan". Rather than change everything that references the account, Windows sticks with the original file folder name. The only way I know to fix this is:
1) Rename the Alan account to something else
2) Create a new account named Alan
3) Use this link to transfer the stuff from the old profile to the new one: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=811151
I've tried changing the name of an account and then changing the folder name to match it (in my XP VM) and while the change appears to be allowed, it results in a new profile with the new name. The old profile doesn't appear on the login screen either - so I'd recommend not doing this.
