    I was just using my mac, with a lot of apps open i admit, but then when I hit F9 it froze. I hard rebooted and then when it got to the login screen, i had lost my admin user!!! As far as i can tell, my files on that account are intact, but i need to find a way to get it back..

    update: i cant find my applications folder!!! Pls help, i had extremely important files on there!! This is in Leopard 10.5.4

    I cant make a new admin user because my other user is standard!

    I am so freaked out....

    EDIT: i ran dscl . read /groups/admin GroupMembership
    and it said that my old user had root privileges

    also, system preferences says that my old user is a group?

    UPDATE: ok i got my access back, by turning on root, who is my new user...
    the only problem is that i cant access the X509Anchors keychain, no matter what password i use. It has security certificates in it and Mail cant remember passwords without them, and all the applications are asking for it?

    How do i get access to this keychain?
