    Could you try following this guide > User Profile Folder - Change User Account Folder Name - Windows 7 Help Forums and seeing if this works?

    The guide is for windows 7 / Vista, however it should be the same if not similar.

    Set up a local account with the desired name, delete the other account and then change the local account to a MS account (if desired).
