You don't need to tell us here on fixya. Just type your name in correct and it will work. If you want to setup a new account and you can't use the name you want, then someone else is already using it. You can't get that name, whatever you try. If you made an account with a name you don't want, just leave it and don't use it.
1. From an account with administrative privileges, go to Control
Panel>User Accounts and create the new Standard user account named
the way you want and at least one extra Administrator account. Call the
latter "CompAdmin" or "Tech" or the like.
2. Log into the new Standard user account once so the profile files/folders are created and then log into CompAdmin.
3. Now go to Control Panel>System>Advanced>User Profiles>Settings
4. You will see where you can copy user accounts. Copy the old account
to the new one from there. Use the Browse to select your new account
5. Log into the new correctly named account and make sure all your stuff
is there and that it works the way you want. When you are satisfied,
you can log out and into CompAdmin and delete the old user account from
Control Panel>User Accounts.
This is written by a english person with a old english name like martin and yet their educational skills are well lacking from the standard of spelling,So much for the british education system of modern times as when i was at school i got the slipper for every word spelt wrong in our daily spelling tests.Yes i was educated in the east end of london where we learnt how to nick jam jars wear daisy roots for a spot of night time ethnic majority of muslim origin bashing ,Use a transit van as a getaway vehicle it was faster than a austin 1100 panda car and all the other things but at least i took pride in spelling the queens english,T reg so this is a 1978 built vehicle then ? What is it a cresta or a viva
I'm assuming you have the right map installed.Make sure you type in the right city (town/village). Make sure you are spelling the street name correctly.
If your street has been there for more than a year then it may be a map error. Try browsing the map in the area where you live to see if you you can find your street and see how it is spelt. It may be spelt incorrectly on the map. You can correct an incorrect spelling. See the manual for map corrections.
Newer streets may not be included on your current map. You may have to wait for an update or you can buy an update or you can use the map corrections to add your street. See the manual. HTH Peter
