Operating System Version: Windows XP Home SP2
Problem Application Name & Version:
Problem Hardware Make & Model: Dell Dimension 4700
Error Messages:

I just reinstalled windows xp home sp2 on a second computer that I just bought.  While installing, I filled out the the custom name settings of the system.  I am the only user, administrator, as I do not share this system with anyone else.  When I went into the Documents and Settings folder, I see 2 folders.  One says All users and the other one says Owner.  The owner folder has all the relevant folders such as favorites, start menu etc.  I cannot rename this folder as windows says it is a system folder and cannot be changed.  Why is this folder named owner, and what can I do??  My old computer never named this system folder "Owner", it named it the name I logon with and the name I setup during the windows xp install.

You didn't change your name, you just said so. You only got the Administrator account to log in with, not another username that is an administrator. So all Windows has made are the All Users folder (in case you ever do add another name, this folder is used for application that every username on this system can use) and the Owner's folder which is your Administrator folder.
