If you have the Windows Domain Tools (User Manager for Domains in 
particular) you could rename the user Joe to Bob.

1) Open user Manager for Domains
2) Click on the user Joe to highlite it
3) In the menu, choose User->Rename
4) Enter Bob in Change to.
5) You can then go back into the "new" Bob user and Edit full name, 
description, password, etc.

Hope that helps,
