You can change the name of your
windows processor to anything you feel
like and keep it that way.
Here are two samples I made:

Steps :-
1. Open Notepad or any other text
editing software you use
2. Copy and paste the exact code below
into the text editor:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
"ProcessorNameString"=" The Processor
Name I Like "
Edit the part of the code given in bold
type and change it to whatever name
you want to give your processor.

(NB: Understand that \0 in the above
code should only be present if Windows
stores your processor name at that exact
location. Open the Registry Editor
(regedit.exe) and navigate to the above
mentioned keys to check whether or not
to include the \0 .)

3. Click on File Menu, click on Save As
and select "All Types" in the Save as
Type option. Save the file as
NewProcessorName.reg or ‘anything you
want’ .reg.

4. On your desktop, create a new
desktop. Enter regedit / S "Location of
the .reg file" as the location of the item.
For example, enter regedit /S "C:
\NewProcessorName.reg" if your registry
file is located in the root of C:\ drive.

5. Copy or cut the created Shortcut file.

6. Navigate to “C:\Documents and
Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs
\Startup” (Windows XP ) or to “C:\Users
\Windows\Start Menu\Programs
\Startup” (Windows Vista, 7 and 8), if C: is
your housing your windows system.
(Remember that AppData is a hidden

7. Paste the copied file.

This registry file would now be executed
every time Windows starts and the
Processor Name would always be
changed to your preferred name each
