Hello,

I have this weird problem after playing with the settings. On my login screen, there is another account beside mine, named 'Other...'. I checked under preference - Users, there is no such account.

My question, How to delete this account?

Thanks
Savvy

You have root turned on, open Netinfo manager then Security in the menu bar then click "disable root user." Enjoy.

LOL! 'Other...' isn't a user, it's a account prompt. Another way to acess this is to hold down option-return with a user selected (use arrow keys). I have root enabled, but it doesn't show this, so there must be another way of enabling this. I once had it, but I can't remember what I changed :eek:
