    Greetings

    I am second owner of macbook pro running 10.6.8. I deleted previous owner account by creating new admin account and using it to delete previous owner account. I remaned home directrory to my name as well. When I look at Chrome history page it has Previous-Owner-MacBook-Pro. I deleted Chrome and reinstalled but it still Previous-Owner-MacBook-Pro. Any advice on how to remove Previous-Owner would be appreciated. Thanks

    Install a fresh copy of OSX on your computer. This should have been the first thing you did when you bought your used MacBook.

    When you uninstall Chrome, there may be leftover files that it doesn't delete when dragging the application icon to the trash.

    Try deleting:
    ~Library/Application Support/Google
    and
    ~Library/Caches/Google/Chrome

    Before you reinstall Chrome.
