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 :)

I need to delete the main user so i can get plugins and downloads.

Chances are you only need to make your current user an Admin user.
Try the following:

Hold down on the Apple in the upper left-hand corner of your screen.

1. Select System Preferences

2. Click on the Accounts icon

a. If the paddle lock is closed click on it to open it (This requires the admin user name and password)

3. Click your User name (if underneath your name it shows Standard)

4. Then click in the "Allow user to administer this computer" if the box is empty.

If that does not work give a little more detail about what you are trying to do.

Im running winds vista and the two admin accnt have been deleted by my son now all i can get is winds cannot access the specified device path or file you may not have the appropriate permissions to access...

Hi there. You will probably need to set another one up. You will need to boot your system up in Safe Mode.

To do this, turn the system on and keep pressing the F8 key. This will bring you to the Advanced Settings menu. Choose Safe Mode. When the welcome screen loads, choose Administrator, and press enter. Now all you should need to do is to set up a new admin account from the Control Panel.

If this doesn't work. Go back into Safe Mode and use System Restore to take it back to an earlier state before the accounts were deleted. This can be found by right-clicking on My Computer and choosing Properties. Or it can also be found in Control Panel.

Let me know if these work
