I actually ran into the same situation today. I went into the registry to
change the user name to reflect the name of the user that is login.
Unfortunately for me the it return back to Ccity when I rebooted the system.
My fix to the scenario was to first of all, create another administrator
account, then deleted the Ccity account. When you delete the Ccity account,
you will be asked if you you want to keep your files or deleted them. Please
choose the keep your files options like that all of your files in the deleted
account will become a folder name after the user account that you just
deleted. You can login with the new administrator account and the recover
your old files.
I hope this help you!
