    It seems some aspects of my main user account in snow leopard is currupt... need to create a new admit account and move over to that one as my primary account....

    ... what is the safest way to do this?

    I need to move a bunch of files over, and perhaps some preferences and such....

    Should i create the new admin account, change the permissions on all of the files i want to transfer so that the new account has read/write on them, log in to the new account and transfer the files over?

    any suggestions? don't want to mess this up...
