From the win32 api help file.

The SetComputerName function sets the computer name to be used the next time the system is restarted.


Funny...the computer name does not change if you use restart from shutdown menu.

Is the system not restarting if i choose restart.

You have to choose "shut down" and then reboot in order for the name to change.

Why would M$ lie to us. The little bitches.

Hi IwasTitan,

I think M$ right here. :) Because ComputerName must be unique name for local networks and communications.
Restart operation refresh all connections other computers.

have nice days

I agree. A short sightedness on my part.
