I bought this newer iMac from a friend who had the main user name set as "admin" and password as "password". I used this account to get all the software, fonts, etc. installed. When I changed the name and password and reset the computer it's like it saw me as a new user and everything I had done was reset with the exception of the fact that the software was all still in the Applications folder. I desperately need to get logged back in as the other user so I can get to the files I had dropped on the desktop and emails I had in Outlook. Thank you in advance for your help - I am completely new to Lion!
