After renaming SA account,still it there in profiler trace?

Dear Amigos, We are having basic doubt!!!! After installing the sql server with Mixed mode authentication,We renamed SA user with different name due to security attacks.While taking sql server profile trace most of the times login name shows as 'SA'. we not able predict why it is still there? Is There any Hacking happend in my server. Even when we look at running processes through sp_who, we see that 'sa' is still being used in various background operations Ex: trace in sql server: Event class Binary Data login name Lock:Acquired oxo.. Sa Regards, Stephen
