    You know, I swear if it isn't one thing, it is another.
    A second account I created on my iMac, wouldn't work properly. Office 365 apps would obtain a license from Office 365. In addition I placed Google Chrome on the 'Taskbar'. But, after logging off and back onto the account, it would disappear.

    Weird.

    Anyway, I decided to delete all the data for that account, and now trying to delete the actual account.
    It has been sitting on Deleting Account for over an hour (again, no data on that account), and I did select the 'Erase Home folder'.

    The above is also preventing me from restarting the computer or logging off, till the process is complete.
    My question is, why is it taking so long?

    Odd, no?

    I forced a reboot, and then performed the Account deletion again. After that, I recreated the secondary account. Office apps, like Word, Excel, etc. 'seem' to be working fine now.

    Time to perform a backup...

    You should always be doing a backup prior to any sort of work on accounts. If you use TimeMachine, it will backup hourly and thus remove the need for manual intervention to initiate the backup
