      I'm afraid I do not understand your question. However, if you are able to explain better what you are trying to do, I recommend that you submit a new question, via the Ask a Question button on MakeUseOf Answers.

    Click on your start button and select "Control Panel".


    Enter "user accounts" in the search field. Select "User Accounts" from the results.

    Select "Change your account name" from the options. If you are prompted to enter an administrator username and password, enter it then. (If you are not currently logged into Admin, click "Manage another account" and select the Administration account.)

    Type in the new name you want for your Admin account.

    Click the "Change Name" button to save your new Admin name.

    If above method is difficult for you then

    Set Owner 1.0 easily allows you to change Windows 7 Owner name and organization with a click of a button.

    1.Download the Set Owner 1.0 application from here
    2.Extract the Set Owner executable file from within the downloaded zip file.
    3.Run the application and you will see the application open up. You should see the following window.
    4.Fill in both fields by giving the appropriate Owner name and organization name that you want.
    5.Hit the “Apply” button and your Windows 7 Owner name should be changed! As simple as that.

    The registration information (owner, company) can be changed using the registry:
    - click Start, type "regedit" into the search field and run the Program when found
    - navigate to the following point
    "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersion"
    - there you can change "RegisteredOrganization" and "RegisteredOwner"

    Changes take effect either immediately or after a reboot. I strongly recommend to leave any other entry untouched otherwise you might damage your validation.
