I am using vista home premium

I want to change the name on a account

Will the SW that is currently installed for person A also work the same for person B? Or will I have to reinstall all the SW after changing the name to person B?

 Yes. Nothing else will change; except the fact that for the SW that uses that option, the owner wil change from A to B.

Example any new office docs that's created will have B as Author instead of A since it considers the account owner by default.

Wow, I think you have saved me again. SmileSmile

So just to be sure I have this straight,

When person B clicks on start menu, the same programs that person A saw, person B will see also? Did I get that right?

It is no fun being techy challenged, which is what I am. EmbarassedEmbarassed

 Yep. The exact same thing. Same programs, settings and so on because you're simply renaming the account, not creating a new one.

Actually, the only thing that changes is your view of the account name.  It doesn't even move things into a new folder (that's why my account name is my full name, but the data folder that my user account is in is my first name and Admin).

If that's confusing ignore it.

Oh, the site that was :(

You hit the bold button. :D  If it isn't lit, then you can either mess with the HTML or ignore it.

I'm not really sure what to do about the CD drive. :/
