MacBook Pro :: Remove And Delete Applications?
how do I remove/delete applications? I recently installed a program that came with a bunch of other secondary applications. I've removed the entire program but for some reason, 2 of the secondary programs refuse to be deleted. I can't find them in the Applications folder and I didn't download it from the App Store.

IPhoto 11 :: Delete Picture Remove Faces Data?
Does deleting pictures from iPhoto delete the data from faces.db? I organize my photos through Finder and recently made some serious changes. I was wondering if I deleted everything (photos are not copied to my iTunes Library upon importing) and then reentered it, what would that do to the faces.db? Basically, I only bought it for facial recognition. Other than that, I use Adobe Bridge.

OS X Leopard :: Reset To Zero Data - Freshly Installed Account Stalls As Before?

and saw no way out but to reset to zero: I trashed its prefs file, removed the /Library/Mail folder and started up Mail again. I did not even import the old emails, just set up my email account again. And as before, downloading emails stalls at 100% and won't show the d.l. mails. I cannot quit except by force-quitting it; i.e. I am not able to d.l. any emails for 4 days now!

What else could I remove - besides the app itself (which I did at the beginning), its prefs and that Mail folder? What else could I do???

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Delete Account And All Associated Data But Not The Owners?
I have been using a borrowed Macbook Pro (5.4) OS X 10.6.8 so that I could learn some of the differences between the Mac & the PC's that I am familiar with.Before returning the Macbook to it's owner I'd like to wipe out the information I've put onto it while I had it. Documents, passwords, history etc. I'd like to return the laptop as it was when I rec'd it. The person I've borrowed it from is quite familiar with Mac systems, and I'd like to be sure my data is securly removed.

The person I borrowed from has their user account on the computer locked, and of course I can't damage their files in any way. I do have athority to create a new account.

I'm not sure if there is more information you need so that you can help me, but this should get the ball rolling.

Software :: Any Way To Delete Previous Owner Account Without Password?
My girlfriend just purchased a 1 year old Mac with OS X 10.5.2. Incredible as this seems, the previous owner mistakenly left all of her old information on the computer! We would like to delete this, but have been unable to contact her and get her password. Is there another way we can erase/delete this information?

MacBook Pro :: If I Delete A User Account Does That Delete His Library?
I never use "User Accounts" on my MacBook. So I don't know much about them.

If I delete one User Account, will it delete that user's libraries, such as their music, movies, documents, etc?

Also, will it delete the programs that were installed under that user's account, but are accessible by all users?

MacBook Pro :: Unable To Login To Admin Account / Installed FileVault To My Admin Account
After installing FileVault to my admin account, I shut down my MacBook Pro (10.6.5). I later wanted to sign-in to my admin account but when I typed in the correct password, the screen read, "You are unable to log in to the FileVault user account "(my admin account)" at this time. (and in fine print: Logging in to the account failed because an error occurred.) Does anyone have any info on what I should do?

Applications :: Installed Logitech Control Center - Now Can't Remove
So I bought a Logitech MX Revolution -- I can't get used to its feel. The G9 is so much nicer n the hand...

I had installed the control center software, configured it, used the mouse for half a day, wanted to cry.

So I'm about to return the mouse, but I can't remove the System Preferences applet and can't find any official uninstall mechanism.

Applications :: Two Versions Of Safari Installed - How To Delete Previous One
How do I go about deleting applications? I have two versions of Safari on my computer. Version 4.03 or something like that, and the new 5.02. I know I upgraded to the 5 when it came out and I had assumed I was running that since then. Turns out I've still been running 4, and was having an issue with the "New Tab" not working. Thats when I noticed I wasn't running 5. (if you follow me?)... I just redownloaded 5 b/c I thought it would overwrite the 4 version, but it didn't, now I have two Safari's and when I do a spot light search 2 show up as well with no indicator as to which is which. If it matters, I am running Snow Leopard with everything up to date (at least I think? considering I thought this was...)

MacBook Pro :: Installed SSD And Copied Data But Cannot Boot
Got a new MBP 13" today and installed a new Crucial SSD. I have copied my Mac HDD using the Disc Utility (inserted in a USB enclosure). However, I can't get the MBP to boot from the SSD and the floppy drive won't work so I can't insert a CD and instal the operating system from scratch. It will boot from USB and the original disk (which is still in the enclosure).

OS X Tiger :: Can Delete User Data Without Deleting User Account
I am selling my old iMac G5, which has Tiger (10.4.11). I'd like to delete all my old user data, then just change the name on the account (to something like "Apple User"). That is, I don't want to do a fresh install and wipe the HD. But I don't want to leave behind my email messages, Safari bookmarks, etc. Is this possible?

MacBook Pro :: How To Set The Password For Account
Is there any way I can have the logon screen where you have to enter account plus password. I do not see a setting that offers that.

Currently whenever i on the laptop, it brings me straight to the desktop. I would like to have the account and password page (for security purpose.)

Is it possible to do that on the screen?

If yes, may I know how?

MacBook Pro :: Should I Delete User Account After Migration
I migrated my old MacBook to my new MacBook Pro without changing the user accounts so now I have a user account on the MBP that I only used for a few days.  I'm trying to determine whether or not I need to keep that new user account.  I didnt put anything on it of substance (set a few bookmarks in Safari and downloaded a couple of free apps). I've read a few things online about issues people have after trying to delete user accounts.

MacBook :: Can't Delete Off A New Macbook Pro / Remove It?
I've got one old macbook pro (bought it new at the start of 2008), 15inch jobbie. I use it at the moment for everything; web browsing, downloading hideous amounts of music (for dj use), music production (ableton etc) and also djing off (native instruments traktor pro).
It's just not cutting it, the poor old thing is noticably slow when it comes to running traktor, i have to have the latency on the soundcard really high and run everything on the lowest quality imaginable. This still effects the sound quality, even though I've optimized it as much as possible.

So I'm getting a new macbook pro 15.4 i7. But i will be using it only for Ableton and also for djing with (Traktor). I want to wipe pretty much everything else off it, it's just not going to be needed. But I'm worried there's something important that i will wipe off it.

What is a big no-no to delete?

Applications :: Will Apple Mail Delete All Messages In My Gmail Account
I had a hotmail account and about a month ago apple mail deleted all my messages from the hotmail account, therefore I am unable to access any of them from anywhere else except my mac.

I learned that that was due to me leaving the box "remove copy from server after retrieving a message." Now I fixed that and moved to gmail, as I was able to upload all hotmail messages to my gmail account through tuhunderbird.

Since I am not a big fan of Thunderbird as it is giving me some password issues, today I set up the gmail imap (I think) accunt on my apple mail, but there is no box "remove copy from server after retrieving a message" for gmail in prefrences, just for hotmail.

Now I am scared, will apple mail delete all my messages from the gmail server, and if it will, how do I prevent it from doing so?

MacBook Pro :: Password Recovery For Second Gmail Account
I want to find my password for my second gmail account which I haven't used for a while, and I'd rather not change the password. (I keep forgetting passwords, and hate resetting them). how to find my password for the first gmail account (Finder>Utilities>Keychain>>enter email account name>select 'show password'>enter Mac user password). I was hoping that I could just change the first account name to the second under the entry, but when I do this, the password shown continues to be that of the first account, not the second.
