Earlier today, I changed my password on my account and I simply can't remember what it was. I figured it wouldn't matter, I'd just pop in my Mac OS X disk and be on my way. I put in the disk and booted onto it while holding C. I was greeted at the install screen where I chose "Reset Password" from the Utilities menu. I changed my password and it said everything was ok. I restarted and my main account was not shown on the login screen.. Only my other one. At this time, my heart sank. I thought I had lost all my data (Some of it is backed up, but still). I quickly logged into the other account and I found my home folder was still listed in the finder under "Users". All my data is in place. I figured if I could make a new user account under the same name, I could replace the new home folder with my old one & therefore getting all my data back. Nope. I can't access the accounts panel in System Preferences. It just lags when I click on "Accounts". It says "Loading Accounts" in the top of the System Prefs window and has been for 5 minutes. I feel the best thing to do would be to do an Archive & Install but would like other opinions, first. Please, ANY help is much appreciated.
