    Hi ya,

    Every 6 months or so I wipe out my machine and start fresh. I get some weird enjoyment out of it. Don't ask.

    I was thinking the next time I do it, set up the administrator as just that an admin. Then once I'm booted in create a new user that will be my main user.

    The thinking is maybe I can just wipe out that user and start over. Which would be a quicker process then formatting and reinstalling the OS.

    Is there limitations to a secondary user I'm unaware of?

    Does anyone do this?

    You can wipe out the user & start over whether you're doing that or not. Just create a new Admin, log in as that Admin, and delete the old Admin.
