    Hi. I just bought a 3 month old Macbook Pro from someone who felt like an iMac was more up their ally. I got it for a good deal too!

    Anyways the previous owner was all up to date and had some good program on his OSX 10.6.3 and I want to keep everything except for the user name.

    I have currently changed the User Name in System Preferences > Accounts Computer Name in the System Preferences > Sharing > section but the home folder (house icon) is still the original owners name as well as in Terminal.

    How can I get this to my name without having to create my own user?
