    Re: How to change the Registered User information in my Windows PC?

    By following the steps below you will be able to edit the registered user and company name for either a Windows XP computer or a Windows Vista computer.

    To begin, first verify the registration details of your Windows computer.

    For Windows XP and Windows Vista click on Start and right-click on My Computer (just Computer). You will see the screen shown below.

    change_registered_user_and_company_01.jpg

    The details regarding User information will be as show below :-

    22222.jpg

    In order to change your registered user name, you will need to edit this information in your registry.

    Editing the registry has the potential to cause serious (and unrecoverable) damage to your PC.

    If you are at all uncomfortable editing the registry, please do not attempt the following.

    In Windows Vista, open your registry by clicking the Start Menu and typingregedit.

    Windows will prompt you for confirmation before running the Registry Editor.

    In Windows XP, open your registry by going to Start and then Run and typing regedit.

    In your registry you will have several choices, untie the tab named
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
    333.jpg

    Continue to navigate through the registry by untying the following tabs:
    Software, Microsoft,Windows NT, Current Version.

    The Current Version will have two editable sections calledRegisteredOrganization and RegisteredOwner.


    444.jpg


    In order to change either of these fields double click the field name and enter your information in the "Value data" section and click ok.

    555.jpg

    When you are satisfied with your entries, exit the Registry Editor and your new values will be present when you open
    MY COMPUTER PROPERTIES.

    Friend, you can change the settings regarding user information in Control Panel. Every change you want to make regarding System, User Account and Administrator, you should go to Control Panel.

    There you can find the User's information by going to Account Settings. It asks for what changes you need to make and do that changes. You can also change the password of the user in the similar way.

    hi,just follow my instructions carefully,

    1.click start menu type regedit in to the search programs and files box.this will bring up the windows7 registry.
    2.depending on your settings,you may have to verify that you want to run the registry editor.
    3.locate the registry key:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ Registered Owner.
    4.double click on registered owner and change the keys string value to what ever name you want.
    5.now when you check the name owner by clicking the start button by typing winver into the search box,your new name will appear instead of your old name.
    6.keep in the mind that this trick is cosmotic only; it does not change the actual owner of the Windows 7 license in the legal sense. It also does not change the licensing relationship you or anyone else has with Microsoft.

    Re: How to change the Registered User information in my Windows PC?

    When you've inherited someone else's PC and want to make it your own, you can change the registered owner's name in the Windows Registry. The How-To Geek runs down the steps; in a nutshell, using the registry editor (Start->Run->regedit.exe to get there), change the RegisteredOwner key value located in
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion. As always, back up your registry before making changes, just in case.
