    Hi, a while ago I read on one of the threads that if your computer is getting slow and annoying that you can create a new user account (with admin privileges), delete your old user account and your computer would run faster.
    Is this true? and if so, would the applications on my old account still be on the new account?
    I have the adobe creative suite on my computer and I don't want to lose those programs. (i don't have the installation disks with me)

    :) thanks

    Your applications shouldn't be tied to your account, but your files are. Don't just delete the account, 'cause you'll lose the Documents folder in it.

    Applications should be at the top level (HD > Applications) so that all users can access them. The only ones to put into another folder within an account would be ones only a single user needs access to.
