    Hi

    Search the registry for the name under its strange spelling. You will find several places where the same thing will come up because some programs like office copy the information to the registry key for the program.

    Its a registry key that needs changing:

    Start > Run > "regedit"

    you want
    HKLM>Software>Microsoft>WindowsNT>Current Version> and then you find RegisteredOwner and RegisteredOrganisation, double click the key that is wrong and voilla change it and its fixed.

    Its fairly easy to do. Just don't go changing other things. Doing so can cause major problems with Windows
