After installing Bootcamp for the second time on my C2D Macbook the desktop icon is named Untitled, the first time I installed it it was named WINDOWS. Everything seems to work just fine, but just something that kinda bothers me and not sure if it's ok or not or how to rename it. If anyone could tell me how that would be appreciated.

I have only installed one time, mine is also called Untitled. Have not had any issues, just thought it was normal.

It will not let me rename it. Can rename every other icon, folder, except this one.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

I finally figured out how to rename it, you just boot up in Windows and then change the name of your C drive. It's that simple...now anyone know how to change the widows icon????

There's another recent thread in this forum on renaming the Windows drive and still another if you don't want to see the icon while in OS X. Just scroll down a bit in the forum.
