    Here's how to do it... BUT... it takes a while and is quite involved.

    Why not create another user, say Shraavan.
    Make sure make Shraavanan is an administrator.
    Copy/save your themes, files and/or settings over to Shraavan.
    Log off then back on as Shraavan.
    Now delete the old user account (it world).
