My wife and I recently separated but before I left she had a hacker friend of hers get into my laptop while I was at work and changed EVERTHING into her name. I have the majority of it changed back, but can't figure out how to change the Windows Logon Name. Can I get a little help please?

Hmm, I tend to be more on the paranoid side... but if this was me, I would back up the very most important files, and do a full re-format on the computer.

Login in with an administrator account (not the one you want to change), this may include creating a new account.

Next go to Control Panel/User Accounts. Select Manage User Accounts.

Find the account you want to change and make the necessary/desired changes.

That's it.

I forgot to add to my post, the very same advice. This is HIGHLY recommended.
