How can i delete a user account from my macbook osx


Hiya. So long as it's not the main (Administrator), account it's pretty straightforward:
Choose Apple menu > System Preferences and click Accounts.

1. Click the lock icon to unlock it, and type an administrator name and password.
2. Select the user account you want to delete, and then click the Delete (-) button.
3. Click OK to save the user's files on the computer, or click Delete Immediately to remove the user account and all the user's files. If you saved the user's files, they are stored in a disk image in the Deleted Users folder, in the Users folder. To see the saved files, double-click the disk image in the Deleted Users folder. To delete the user's files, drag the disk image to the Trash.

Hope this helps :)

All my laptop drives are encrypted and all my files in every drive are corrupted how to decrypt that encrypted drives


Sounds like you've been hit withe "Ransome ware".
Has anyone contacted you to say they'll fix it for a price?
If you have taken a full backup or better still an Image of your Hardrive you can "Restore" from that, otherwise you may have to re-install the O/S (Operating System).

HDD Locked due to Brontok Virus


Download a copy of the AVG Rescue CD (ISO image file or USB image) and burn this to a blank CD (or USB stick) then use this to boot the computer with the virus.

Run the AVG virus scanner and let it remove all detected virus activity.

I wanw find my password on windows vista


Are you using Windows vista, there is a separate hidden account called administrator.
The easiest way to access it is to go into safe mode.
You do this by tapping F8 just after the self test, and before windows starts to load.
Once on the start up menu choose safe mode.
Click on the administrator account.
From there you can reset any passwords in the control panel under user accounts.
You do not have to know any of the passwords to change them, or you can use utility to delete the lost password.
Usually 3 steps easy to follow:
1.Download Windows Password Recovery Tool from Official site and decompress it on that PC.there is a .ISO file. Burn the .ISO file to a CD.
2.Get out the newly created CD and insert it to the locked computer.
3.Re-boot the locked computer and then follow the process of
instructions. Just after a few steps, the old password will be removed.
It supports all windows version, recover windows 7 password, vista/xp/2003/2000/NT etc.

It looks like you installed the wrong drivers for your motherboard.  It can cause a Blue Screen Of Death.  Also how many hard-drives do you have in that computer?  IDE?  Are the jumpers set to CS?  I find that CS causes problems.  If you have 2 devices on a ribbon cable make one master w non ATA   and the second device as slave.  Also the boot.ini could be confused.  Is the boot.ini on the wrong hard-drive   Did you accidentally put 2 operating systems on the same computer?  lots of things could have caused this.

Forgot admin. passsword


Dear Tured:
If you set the password for windows please try the steps below if it is bios password you need to contact your computer manufacturer
  1. Reboot your machine.
  2. Press F8 before the Windows boot screen appears.
  3. You will be be prompted with a boot options menu.
  4. Select the Start Windows in Safe Mode option.
  5. Click through several self-explanatory screens until your reach the familiar 'Welcome' screen.
  6. Note that this welcome screen is limited to 256 colors and 640x480 resolution because the primary graphics will have been set to the Windows Safe Mode software VGA adapter. You will not be able to change this mode even in Display options, while Windows is running in Safe Mode.
  7. Find the icon for the Administrator user. If the default settings of your system haven't been changed, there should be no password for this account.
    • The Safe Mode Welcome screen might display some of the other users on your system.
  8. Login as the admin.
  9. Press Yes at the prompt asking if you would like to continue using Safe Mode.
  10. Continue on to the User Settings control panel. Here you can change any of the other passwords for user on the machine. Make any changes you want.
  11. Reboot your computer. As long as you don't press any keys (i.e. F8) during the boot-up the computer will startup normally.
  12. Login as the user for which you set the password.
