    After changing my user name what then?

    I successfully changed my user name assigned at a clean install from rafik to Brian by following a tutorial (was it on here, I'm not sure. EDIT: Yes it was : Change Name of User Profile Folder in Windows 10) Basically I changed the name in the registry. That's all working OK. However, some programmes are still referencing locations on rafik and I'm changing them as I go along and that's OK. I decided to run a search on any other references on the system to rafik which returned the following - see screenshot below:

    I'd like to remove all references to rafik and thought the best way is to first move them into a new folder where I can retrieve them again if needed. Is that a good option? Is it likely to crash my system? Is there a better way to deal with them? Any advice gratefully received.
