So i have several locations and i need to get rid of two of them because there are no longer wireless at these spots. I can not however seem to delete them. When I go Apple Menu>Location>Network Preferences> when I hit Location drop down menu and hit "edit locations" it brings up a screen where I can duplicate, rename, delete... Well when i delete the two Locations I want to remove then hit done, everything is fine then i hite apply now on the network window and my powerbook just sits there withe the spinning pinwheel of color forever. it doesnt do anything, I have to force quit the system preferences thing to get it out of the spinny pinwheel of color thing.

Anyways, anyone have suggestions?

QUOTE Thanks

OK quick update.... I made a new user, quick switched to that user account and was able to remove the location from that account w/o any issues. If you know what can cause my admin(main user) account to get corrupted like that to the point where i cant remove the locations from it please let me know. Im thinkin something in a preferece file...
however im too much of a mac noob to know for sure.
QUOTE Thanks
