Putting the wrong name on a Win 7 user profile

However, both of these new computer owners panicked at my suggestion. I explained that they just needed to cable up their new system; they claimed complete inability to do even that. Sigh. Yes, I know that this is mostly in their minds. It's a form of leaned helplessness. If they would just make a small effort, they probably could do this themselves, but they just stop and refuse to even try. It's too complicated, they are afraid that they might damage something or feel foolish.
