A few weeks ago a friend tried to help my wife with a problem on her Mac and unwittingly in the process fiddled with my iMac so that I now have her contact list and her bookmarks and I can't find any way to get my iMac back to the way it was. I have a Time Machine backup, conscientiously kept, and a SuperDuper backup as well. Can somebdy please tell me how to restore my computer to its former state?


iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.4)

    To restore your contacts, quit the Address Book or Contacts application. Triple-click the line below to select it:
      
    ~/Library/Application Support/AddressBook
      
    Right-click or control-click the highlighted line and select Services Reveal from the contextual menu. A Finder window should open with a folder selected. Restore the selected folder, or its contents, from a backup.

       

    To restore your Safari bookmarks, repeat with this line:

       

    ~/Library/Safari/Bookmarks.plist
