I have a desktop PC running Windows 7, the only user is Owner.  Should I change this?

If it is yours then it's only a name, you can change it in control panel. If your not the owner you may want to use the guest as the real owner may not want you to have admin, privileges

I believe it's just a matter of how the profiles are setup.  If no personal name is used when creating profiles/installing Windows, the default is Owner.

 

FWIW
