Either works, the script is easier for those who don't want to fool with registry edits.

As stated, this will not change the account names in Documents & Settings.

If you are simply trying to change the Registered to: information which appears in the System applet, you can do so by modifying the following information using Regedit.

To open the registry editor:

Start >> Run >> type regedit >> press [Enter]

With the Registry Editor open, you want to navigate to the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\Current Version

The two entries you will want to modify are:
:: RegisteredOrganization
:: RegisteredOwner

Simply right-click the entries and choose Modify. Type the desired information.

If you are trying to rename the user account and associated profile information, this is a little more involved refer to the following post:
