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 :)

Folders missing from mail app


A shared folder is a folder that can be viewed, edited and shared with all users on a single computer or on a shared network on various computers.

Because shared folders are used by various users, someone can accidentally delete or remove the folders from their original locations.

A shared folder can also be altered if unauthorized changes have been made to the folder's structure, resulting in corrupt folder files.

Shared folders can easily be restored in a few simple clicks.
Click on the Windows "Start" button.


Click on the "All Programs" link.
Scroll to find the "Accessories" folder and click on it.


Click on the "System Tools" folder.
Click on the "System Restore" icon.


Click on the "Restore my Computer" option.
Enter the date from where the restoration will begin.

Anything deleted, broken or missing from this date will be restored during the process.
Try to recall when the shared folder was last seen or used by someone and select this date as your start date.

Choose the current date as your end date.
Click "Next" to start the restoration process.

Depending on the time period chosen, this process can take anywhere from a few seconds to several minutes.


Check the folder or drive where the shared folder was located prior to disappearing. The shared folder has now been restored.

Proline laptop


try this, it may help
Instructions
  • Go ahead and create a new user account, and make sure you give it a name like MAIN or ADMIN for administrative purposes.
  • Make the other account the administrator by going to: START, CONTROL PANEL, USER ACCOUNTS AND FAMILY SAFETY, USER ACCOUNTS. Then select to make it the administrator
  • Log off your user account, and go to the new administrator account, then delete the old account. After that you create another user name with the same name as the one you deleted so as to get a fresh start.
  • Install whatever programs were not allowed to be installed on the old administrator account because of error messages and other flaws that kept repeating themselves on the old user account. Voila! You have now bypassed the errors that keep you from having a Laptop with no errors on your software programs.

Hello pamnwillie,
If your computer has "System Restore," you can possibly 'recover the programs',
that you 'deleted'!
To perform a "System Restore.
"Follow these instructions carefully, and you will have no problem at all.
The first thing you want to do is click on the "Start Button, paul7of9_50.jpg from the Desktop.
Next, click on "All Programs," scroll to find, Accessories.

Open the program.
"Next select the "System Tools.
"You will see in the next window that open; "System Restore!

paul7of9_51.jpg

"Now this is very important!
Once you click on the System Restore "shortcut."

It will start to look for the last known time of a change in your computer.
The System restore can take as long as a 1/2 an hour to run, so be patient.
"Do not try to do any type of work.

Don't even touch the keyboard for any reason; just let it run!"
Once the System Restore finds the correct "Date and Time"of the event;
choose the Date closest to the time of the occurrence.

eg. "Deleted Programs."

.paul7of9_53.jpg

"Now once again, there will be a 'message'!

Do not do anything with the computer,
"Please don't."
The System Restore will "run" for a while; so once again be patient.

paul7of9_52.jpg

The computer will then "Shutdown and Restart."
Lo-gin if you have to; but!
Do not touch the Keyboard once the Desktop window open,

because System Restore is still running.
Wait! Until there is a message letting you know the

"Restore of your System was successful!"
Take your time.
"I hope all goes well; please let me know if you need further assistant.
"Best Regards."

Make sure you are logged in to an account with administrator privileges.

Click Start, click Run, type "msconfig", click OK. In System Configuration, click the Startup tab. Uncheck anything relating to Roxio Media Manager. Click OK and reboot.

Be very careful when dealing with the registry. Most registry cleaners do more harm than good if not used carefully. The "Delete everything I find" attitude often leads to a slower computer than when you started.

Either do a system restore.
Otherwise boot pc with windows disk and reinstall. You can buy another program called system recovery that will erase everything on the hard -drive back to brand new stage and then reinstall windows.
