I think Explorer does show all the accounts

It shows "Administrator", (standard), "All Users", (standard), "Default User", (standard), and "Compaq_Owner", which is your Tomron account.
I reckon Edward's Microsoft link explains why it is listed in certain places as Compaq_Owner, and in others as Tomron. I would be hesitant to try and change the name through the registry unless anyone knows exactly where to go and that it is a foolproof method, otherwise your account, (theTomron/Compaq_Owner account you use all the time), could become corrupt. Better to use Edward's link to make a copy, ensure that the copy account works exactly as the original, then delete the original, if that is what you want to do.
As an aside, I have another Microsoft link to enable you to insert your name in the Registered to field of System Properties. Again it is a registry change but it seems less likely to cause any problems. The link is here;
But the usual safety measures should be taken, eg create a System Restore point first, (this copies the registry).
