Hi There,


I am trying to delete a previously created user ID and I am unable to do it. I tried on the preference, user & groups. That has been removed but the removed ID still appears in the iTunes and when I install any new application, the new application is installed into the previous ID's system folder.


How can I remove that ID from the Max System and also from the iTunes?

    Users on your computer are totally different from users in the iTunes Store (which are based on Apple IDs), if that's what you're talking about. And iTunes has nothing to do with installing Applications, nor is there a different System folder for different users. So your question is rather confusing.


    Can you explain in more detail WHERE you're seeing this user name, how you're installing applications and exactly where they're ending up?
