    I just installed some updates which required a restart and now my computer is named Macintosh 2, any reason why it may have done this and is it safe to change it back to just Macintosh?

    Thanks.

    Go to System Preferences --> Sharing.

    Computer name there changed?

    Won't cause any problems changing the name...not sure why it changed in the first place.

    My PowerBook used to change it's name all the time. Got up to 9 before it stopped doing it.
