    Is there a way to change a username in Windows 98SE?

    I have a number of users set up, but want to change the name of one
    without changing the settings or contents of that user's view of the
    system. Control panel won't let you do this, is there must be a quick
    work around?

    I want to retain all emails and settings in the new account.

    TIA

    In regedit look at
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion

    I don't have multi-user set-up but would guess they would be in there
    somewhere.
