    For the past 20 minutes or so, I've been trying to download different .mp3's from different filesharing sources, like MegaUpload and MediaFire. Everytime I begin downloading the files, I get this error:

    What's wrong? How can I change the settings so the files download on "carleysmb" instead of "katylaree"?

    Log into your main account, if you have admin rights, and then delete the katylaree account. Go to System Preferences>System>Accounts. Select the offending account and hit the - sign
