    Hi..
    I had restored my iMac from Time Machine 2-3 times, so all that 3 users are still showing on my users and Im not able to use the name, which I need for my main user, since it says, already used.

    Damn!
    How do I remove the unused users ?

    Im on OSX Lion.

    System Preferences -> Accounts. Then there is a list of users. Select one you don't want and press the small "-" in the bottom left corner.

    (You will need the correct privileges to delete other users)

    You need to press the padlock and enter your password. It's there to stop you clicking on things by mistake.

    Make sure you copy any files you want over first!
