as most of you know..one needs to have administrator access for 0sx to add anything. how do i do that? I set my self as the administrator...but in that little box that you check... here what i do... sytem pref...users...edit users...password.,.. then once there there is a box that says "allow user to administer this computer".... i believe that will solve my answer...but im not able to check it or not... i mean it is checked already...so i guess its set right..but its dimmed so im not able to touch it anymore... now i should be able to administer my computer but everytime i try to install updates of osx it tell me i need to have an administrator password to do it and then i have no other option of doing anything else. i dont understand.
