How can I disable, turn off, remove, delete, eradicate, this pesky MobileMe alert that pops up every five min. or so?

I bought a used Mac pro dual 3Ghz, the machine and the apps are excellent and work perfect. That Mobile Me is the previous owner's.

He has left the country, no contact available. I have no name or password to enter the Mobile Me member, and I have no need for it.

This thing pops up in the middle of my editing, is there any way to make it stop? Ahhhhhhhh ! It just happened again while I'm typing this...

Welcome to the Forum. Go into Sys Prefs/Accounts and set a new User account with Admin settings. Enable Fast User switching while in there and then select new User and log into that account. Then go onto Apple menu and log out of the original user with mobile me and then go back to accounts and delete the old User and it should be good then. That way you have a new User with no old data to sort.

System Prefs > MobileMe > Remove any information in there or click the sign out button.

MM can be very insistent, and the machine is still trying to connect.

I did the above and it worked!

However... the FCP project I was editing is gone, the start drive, and the other 3 Sata drives that I do my editing on are also gone - The sound will no longer come through the big speakers, only the little speaker inside the mac pro wtf?

Please advise - I need to see these for my HD projects.

Thank you
