I just purchased an Asus g75vx Laptop (preinstalled win8/64b) and it arrived yesterday. It was a replacement item from my insurance compnay as my previous laptop was taken when my house was burgled.
I followed all the procedures required by windows 8 when booting up for the first time. It asked for my email account that I assosciate with Microsoft and password, so I promptly added the same I used on my old laptop/xbox 360 etc.
Now this is where the problem is...
When I logged in for the first time, it had my username as Jennygirlie Bloom, not my actual name that I entered, and the default user folder is also jennygirlie, not my name. This is extremely irritating, and I'm not even sure what the problem is. I was able to change the name, but it still defaults all downloads etc. to users/jennygirlie.
I'm just wondering what is it? Why is it doing it? And can I get rid of it?
This is obviously a major irritation for me, as the laptop is brand new and I'm OCD when it comes to things like this.
