    Hi everyone, I was just playing around with "User" name in the finder window( left hand side where Your hdd, Network, desktop, movies, music, etc etc is listed)..Anyways, I right clicked on the User name and renamed it.. Now every app installed on this Maxbook pro has gone default/stock settings, all my bookmarks, themes, downloads, passwords etc are gone :(.

    If I goto Main HDD, Under Users folder I see THREE User folder listed > Shared, Willroger's(with a Home Icon) and Willrogers(simple default folder). The Willroger's with Home icon is 14Gb big and was created around Xmas dec 2006 time(when I got this notebook) I believe all my program, settings etc are in there. The other Willrogers folder(with simple default folder icon) was created today and has only 6.2Mb data.

    How do I bring back the Original Willrogers User? Is it possible? Will all my apps go back to how they were, with all settings, passwords, etc?

    Pleae help :(
