Just a personal update to the excellent 'How to rename the built-in Administrator account' Windows 8 tutorial.
There are 4 methods described, and indeed methods 1 and 2 did not work ony my ('standard') Windows 8 64-bit. However method 3, which is described as being for Windows XP, did in fact work on my Windows 8. It looks easier than the suggested method 4!
Edit: here's the link to the tutorial in question:http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/rename-administrator-account-in-windows/
