The one that comes up, the name of the original owner. I got this Mac a while ago from someone who owed me money and every time a trouble message pops up it has that guy's name in it. Makes me feel like I'm dating a woman who still has pictures of her ex all over the place. Can this be altered? Thanks.

A computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any invention in human history - with the possible exceptions of handguns and tequila.
The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude towards the problem. You understand ?
