I am having a problem performing maintenance tasks on Microsoft SQL Server 2008 after changing my server name from the original random name given during installation to the one I prefer

This is the error am getting

Could not obtain Information about Windows NT group/users 'WIN-4N4A9TLBGJJ\Administrator', error code 0x534

Is there a way I can fix this problem without having to delete the account and recreating it again?

Did you execute sp_dropserver and sp_addserver? If not, you need to.
