Hello all, I recently purchased a two week old 11" Air. The previous owner has removed all her personal information and when I boot up it shows "Admin" which is fine but when I start some proggies it still mentions previous owners name.

Short of a clean OSx reinstall, how can I remove her name etc. from my Air.

Thanks for any help.

It really is best to do a clean install, despite the effort that it takes. You can never be sure what's on there when you buy a second-hand system so it's best to clean it out completely.

+1 takes little time, and since you just bought it, I'm guessing there isn't much of your stuff on it that would require a backup.
