    Hi,
    I have a problem and I think I know how I caused it. I was messing around in Finder and I renamed my home folder (the folder with the house next to it). I restarted and my computer started acting weird like there was nothing on it and it's the first time I'm using it. I can see my old folder with all my old stuff but I can't set it as default. So under the Users tab, I have my default name with nothing in it and the old folder. How do I get my old folder back to the default name? In the accounts tab in the system preferences there's only one user. Please help, thanks.

    Tom

    Try renaming it back to what it was and rebooting. :)

    Well it told me that the folder already existed, so I just copied over the contents from the old folder to the new one and everything is how it was. Thanks mate.

    Yeah, that's probably an easier solution. Nice work. :)
