Hi again, all.

I have two computers that I have acquired over the years for various
purposes that are not registered in my name.

In other words, the previous owners assigned their names to the computers
when they first got them.

I'd like to put my name on each computer, and would appreciate if anyone
could tell me how to accomplish this.

Thanks once again for your help.
