    Good work, that is a cure, even in 10.8.x!

    Oh, do you have the 10.8 Install Disc?

    OOPs, I meant 10.5 Install Discs, but anyway, 10.6 Discs would be cheaper if you don't have the 10.5 Discs.

     

    Leopard requirements/10.5.x...

     

        *  Mac computer with an Intel, PowerPC G5, or PowerPC G4 (867MHz or faster) processor

     

    minimum system requirements

     

        * 512MB of memory (I say 1.5GB for PPC at least, 2-3GB minimum for IntelMacs)

        * DVD drive for installation

        * 9GB of available disk space (I say 30GB at least)

    Classic/OS9 Apps no longer supported.

    Trouble is Apple no longer sells it, check eBay & such for the Retail version, not the Gray Discs...

    http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_nkw=mac+os+x+leopard+retail+10.5

     

    Snow Leopard/10.6.x Requirements...

     

    General requirements

       * Mac computer with an Intel processor

        * 1GB of memory (I say 4GB at least, more if you can afford it)

        * 5GB of available disk space (I say 30GB at least)

        * DVD drive for installation

        * Some features require a compatible Internet service provider; fees may apply.

        * Some features require Apple’s MobileMe service; fees and terms apply.

     

    Which apps work with Mac OS X 10.6?...

    It's been pulled from the online store & Apple Stores, so you have to call Apple to buy it, last I heard.

    Buy Snow Leopard > http://store.apple.com/us/product/MC573/mac-os-x-106-snow-leopard

    Call Apple Sales...in the US: 1-800-MY-APPLE. Or Support... 1-800-275-2273

     

    Other countries...

    No dear I don't have... So now what to do? Whenever I restart the computer it start from fill up admin account.. Really I m worried about the data...

     

    If I have understood this confusing thread correctly it should be OK to proceed with this as long as you use a new name - DO NOT use a name which matches an existing username. This should create a new admin account without deleting existing accounts or other items. The new account can be used to correct problems with the OS or other accounts.

    I am not sure where you are. What does it say on the screen?

    I cannot identify the 'page' you are on unless you give me the precise wording on the page.

    I am afraid I cannot help you unless I know what you have done and which 'page' you are talking about.

     

    You may like to read my first post again.
