    missing security in system preferences
    Hello! I accidentally trashed my system preferences, don't ask why; fooling around where I shouldn't have. Fortunately I had a DVD backup, and when I put it back, I get the following items when I click on System preferences, then Accounts: Password, Picture, Login Items, Parental Control. Is that normal? Should I not have Security, Limitations up there instead of Login Items and Parental Control?

    I'm trying to encrypt a folder that in OS9 was so simple, now it seems I Have to jump through some other hoops I don't understand. I'm on a G5 itel duo 10.4.9. Got help? Thanks!

    You're on a G5 intel duo... are you running Apple Vista, too? =)

    Your best bet is to copy everything from that DVD backup to restore the missing items.

    Yes, those are the correct tabs.
