I made a boo-boo.

I re-installed XP Pro on my wife's computer and misspelled her last name. (From Jones to Jomes for example).

I was able to change the user name in the MMC, but it kept the same folder in Documents and Setting >

It won't let me change that.

Is there a way to change that? I look at changing the personal profile path, but didn't want to start messing things up.

Help save a marriage!

I believe the preferred method would have been to use the System Properties > Advanced tab. Click the "Settings ..." button under User Profiles and there is an option to Copy a user.

nope, she's the administrator, so it won't give the option to copy profile.

What if I create another administrator, then delete her original account entirely?

then create it again, correctly?

Would that work?

I think that should work. I believe there's nothing to stop one Admin from deleting another.
