    Have you tried to log off and switch users back to your normal admin account? If so, what happens?

    Click on the name in the upper-right corner of the menu bar, usually located next to the "magnifying glass" icon. You should see a list of available users and have the ability to switch from there.

    If not, click on the Apple menu on the far LEFT top of the display and select "log out."

    Since when? In Leopard, I have the date and time next to the Spotlight icon. Just curious.

    At least since 2007: How do I turn on Fast User Switching on my new MacBook Pro? from Ask Dave Taylor!

    You apparently don't have it turned on, which is why I also offered the second "log out" option.
