Please forgive me but I'm not sure what you mean. I'm somewhat new to the
Mac world. I have no clue what the root password is or what you are
referring to. Any help would be much appreciated. I did go in under
accounts and give a specific name to me as administrator and gave a
password but still it does not work... See below...

Do you wish to uninstall VirtualBox (Yes/No)?
yes

The uninstallation processes requires administrative privileges
because some of the installed files cannot be removed by a normal
user. You may be prompted for your password now...

Unable to Uninstall

Postby thehawkes » 21. Feb 2009, 07:35

I don't know what I did but, when I ran the uninstall after a restart, there was nothing to uninstall...this after multiple attempts to run the uninstall routine and it asking for a password to complete.

So, everything is now gone. Seems like some kind of bug but I guess no one else had any solution so...

thanks for at least viewing the previous post...
