HOW TO RENAME YOUR COMPUTER IN WINDOWS 7

WHY WE RENAMED THE COMPUTER
 When we worked in the webs/netwroks (Local Area Network/wireless network), each computer needs different name.  In order to make address (IP address) that useful in data sharing, internet access sharing and printer sharing.
Actually the best giving your computer name is in the first time you install the operating system (windows).
But with numbers and variation of computer (brand), usually the name of them were variative too.
If we work in stand alone computer/notebook it will no problem, but when we work in the ceratin web/network the name of computer will be very important, because with the identical name in the one group of network will make some problems, e.g : wrong address, IP conflict, and with identical printer caused wrong address in printing works.
