This evening I tried to follow the instructions supplied with the WTSRV
FAQ for renaming the My Computer Icon to %Username% %Computername%.  On
my machines I had a localised string which specified the title of the
icon.  I am running W2K with SP2 + XPe.  I have written up some doco for
our environment and thought that others may be helped by it. =20

To modify the My Computer and My Network Places titles complete the
following steps:
1.      Open Regedt32
2.      BROWSE to HKCR=5CCLSID=5C=7B20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D=7D=

3.      Replace the LocalizedString value with the following settings :
  a.      Value Name    : LocalizedString
  b.      Data Type     : REG_EXPAND_SZ
  c.      Data          :
4.      Repeat witReceived: from WEB-MTA by gmail1.housing.wa.gov.au
        h the =93My Network Places=94
  a.      BROWSE to HKCR=5CCLSID =7B208D2C60-3AEA-1069-A2D7-08002B30309D=7D=

  b.      Value Name    : LocalizedString
  c.      Data Type     : REG_EXPAND_SZ
  d.      =40V:=5CWTSRV=5Csystem32=5Cshell32.dll,-9217=401033,%USERDOMAIN%
5.      Ensure that the Data Type is REG_EXPAND_SZ for both values=96 do
not edit the original LocalizedString it will not work.
6.      Click on one of the desktop icons and hit F5.

FYI once the change is made on one computer export the value to a reg
file and then you can merge the changes by a double click :)
