    a new start
    Hello, I am a new mac user.

    Thanks to my friends and family, my computer is already full of music and videos I don't like and I want to erase everything off my hard drive. I just want a new start. However, I need to save some music and applications. I can save stuff on my external, but I do not know how to save applications (such as adobe) or to clear my hard drive. Anyone have any suggestions?

    I think you're making this harder than it has to be. Simply create a new user account (System Preferences => Accounts), then delete the old account. All of that data, which should be stored in the users folder will be wiped out.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
