    I changed the user of a Vista Business computer. The name in user accounts
    was changed but the user listed in C:users is still the old one. There is
    only one user on this machine. For example, when I go to user accounts "Ron"
    is the displayed user. But when I go to the C drive under users it is
    C:users/Rebecca the old user name. Has the correct files in it, but cannot
    change Rebecca to Ron. When I tried to delete it, it said it was trying to
    delete "Ron" when the delete confirm window popped up. Any suggestions.

    this is normal behavior - you can change the user name, but not it's folders
    in Users.
    I'd try creating a new user with the correct name and copy the necessary
    files to that user.
