    I have an imac running Leopard which is my son's machine.

    All his music and Office are sitting on the admin account, not him and I want to transfer it all to his account, but cannot find any clues in the help menu. Can you help me please?

    Also when logged on as him, I can't access the internet, even though I can when logged in as administrator - any clues?

    I have tried installing Office when logged on as him but it won't recognise the admin log in details required during the install. My log in details are first name and last name but once I have entered my first name it won't allow me to enter any more characters. I've tried entering "admin" and "administrator" at this point but no dice.

    Thanks in advance

    Apps don't need to be transferred if installed in default place.

    You can simply uncheck this under Accounts in System Preferences:
    Allow user to administer this computer
