My OS on my computer is Windows7. When I got this computer, I set my user name to a name in a non-latin language. Now I want to change it, because it causes many problems with some of the downloads. How can I change it so under the folder C:/Users/???? My username will get a new (latin) name? I've tried to do it manulally, but it won't let me.

You may also be able to change your actual username, but you will have to create a new admin account (which can be deleted later), logout, login as the temporary admin, change your username, then logout and log back in as yourself.
If none of this works you may have to create a new user account (an administrator) with your new username and fix all of your settings. Then if you want you can delete the old user account (make sure to back up your files).
