    G'day jenjens & Welcome to Mac-Forums.

    If your account has full admin privies then go to Sys Prefs>Accounts.

    In the left pane you see all user accounts associated with your mac.

    Click on the account you want to delete and then click on the minus sign underneath that pane. You'll be asked whether you really want to delete the account and whether or not you wish to save the docs and settings etc.

    If the padlock just below the minus sign is locked you'll need to click it and then enter your admin password to continue.
