    For Win7, to change computer name:
    Right-click Computer > Properties.
    Advanced system settings.
    Select Computer Name tab and click the 'Change' button.

    For Win7, to change the location of your Documents folder:
    Right-click your Documents folder > Properties.
    Select the Location tab and make your changes.

    According to TweakUI, one of the Microsoft Power Toys, moving a
    special folder in XP is as simple as right-dragging the folder to the
    new location and then selecting "Move Here" from the popup dialog.

    Sorry, it's been a long time since I had XP and I've forgotten
    how to change the My Documents folder path.
    I think changing the computer name is something similar to Win7.
    To change the registered user name you edit the registry, something
    like:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion
    and edit the RegisteredOwner value.
