    How to Change Then Delete USERPROFILE for Windows 8

    Just recently got a Windows 8 comp and MS made me enter an email acc and set my fake name as the userprofile
    So I'm wondering how I can change it to a different admin account and then delete the original userprofile without the need to re-install/recover the OS and all that jazz

    You use Windows 8, do you know how to fix this?
    Also, I have 2 HP Battery Indicator and a HP LED Indicator programs that are part of start up; can I disable them?

    Goto task manager, and start up tab and disable any HP crap.

    What I meant was renaming user Rick to user Home, it's not letting me and I don't know how

    I already changed it to Home, but the folder itself didn't change, and there's no Rick
