Not to be a smart ass..  but as I said in my original post.. I click  
the Lock icon and provide the correct Administrator username and  
password.  The lock icon then shows it to be unlocked.  but it still  
won't let me select the  second user account icon to edit it.  It's  
not grayed out or anything. But clicking on it does nothing.

I've tried repairing permissions which only found like two things.   
But still no success.

Suppose the next step would be to create a NEW admin account  
(assuming it will let me do that much) and then see if when logged in  
with that new admin account, can I edit other user accounts..
