      Help deleting old user profile

      hi i would like help with the following

      i recently changed my Computer Naming system via System,Change Computer Name,

      Computer one Name changed from (MyName1-PC) to MyName01-PC
      Computer two Name Changed from (MyName2-PC) to MyName02-PC
      Computer Three Name Changed from (MyName3-PC to MyName03-PC

      all three communicate perfectly so no issue the only issue is deleting the following

      OLD Profile String C:\Users\MyName1-PC\Desktop - Remove the highlighted profile
      after changing to
      NEW profile String C:\Users\MyName01-PC\Desktop Replace with this profile

      both profiles are under C:\user folder

      but when i delete the unwanted profile i get action can not be complete due to folder being open in another program.

      this has been done under the built in admin account specially enabled for this task.
      please see photo

      in the photo i want to remove the highlighted user profile

      i need to rename the profile path part.
      I think you will have to edit the Registry, find and rename or delete all references to the old user name. I did it on XP a couple of years ago, there are dozens of entries to be changed. Make sure you export the registry before you make any changes. It could be quicker and cleaner to format and reinstall.
