    How to rename profile in Windows Explorer

    I recently had a corrupted proflile/account and so I created a new one, obviously with a different name, and then deleted the corrupted one. I managed to change the name of the new profile via the Control Panel, but the original name is still present in Windows Explorer (C:/Users). Is there a way of changing the profile name here as well?
