I had my friend set up my computer, and when I got it the user account name for admin was MrX, so I changed it however it didn't change the folder name. On some of the games I play, they draw the profile name from my user account and it still comes up as MrX, even though I've changed the name already. How am I able to permanently change everything so that this stops happening?

Thanks
