I had a problem changing the name user and group of my OP, now it is worse.

I use the graphical tool to change the names : system-config-users

Now in the welcome screen appears the new user, i introduce the password and it comes back to the welcome screen

What to do to fix it???

You changed the username, did you change the home directory name as well? If so, you will have to rename the old home directory to the new name. Login as root, or use a live boot image. You might be able to login from a console or ssh as the user even though it will complain about a missing home directory.
