"Sammy" as a username in Windows XP RRS feed

    Hello,

    In setting up XP Home for my niece, I ran into something really weird.  When I got to the 'Set Up Usernames' part of the installation and entered her name--Sammy--it wouldn't accept it.  I think the message I got was 'Names must not be equal to "SAMMY", "Administrator", or "Guest".'  Interestingly, when I tried "Sam" it went through okay...what does the name "Sammy" mean for Windows and why can't we use it?

  • What is the computer name? You can't use the same name for the computer and a user!
