I'm trying to figure out how to change my file path names. The system name on my computer is Tsula but all paths still say the 'Owner' thing.

Example: C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\My Documents\My Music\Enya\Enya (new age)\2005 - Amarantine

Know how to fix it? x3

I think you need to create a new profile and move settings from old to new, How to copy data from a corrupted user profile to a new profile - http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=811151

the system name is the name of the pc you would use for network access
owner is your profile name
to change your profile name so it changes the file path involves some heavy registry editing.
its easier to create a new profile with the name that you want and then import your old profile over but things will still end up in .
C:\Documents and Settings\"new profile name"\
However you can just move the my documents folder
but it depends on what results you are trying to get
