Rename The Administrator Account using Group Policy

Steps to change rename "Administrator"

As you know, it’s a best security practice to rename the built-in administrator and guest accounts. Rather than renaming these accounts in the Computer Management console, the preferred method is to use the Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Group Policy, as described in these steps:
  1. Open the Group Policy Object (GPO) Editor.
  2. Navigate to Computer Configuration | Windows Settings | Security Settings | Local Policies | Security Options.
  3. In the right pane, double–click on Accounts: Rename Administrator Account.
  4. Select the Define This Policy Setting check box and enter the new name for the account
  5. Click OK to save your changes.
  6. Repeat this procedure with the Accounts: Rename Guest Account item.
