I cant seem to add software or to update my adobe flash player. †For example, when I got to update the flash player it instead asks me to type your password to allow Install Adobe Flash Player to make changes. It lists my name but for the life of me I dont remember the password (in reality I dont recall setting it up).
I installed windows 7 in my mbp using vmware. now i lost admin password. How to reset/recover this? i dont have password reset disk. How to bypass the password screen. how can i get out of this trouble.
I'm running a bootcamped Windows Vista and I forgot the password to the only admin account. Anyway to fix this without reinstalling the entire system? I don't have access to an installation dvd now either, so anything using that is not possible.
to make a LONG story short, I ended up with the MacBook and he got the couch! thing is we dont speak and i don't know the admin password. I've read the threads but sadly am still at a loss to understand. Can this be fixed without the original install disc?
I am trying to uninstall Virex 7.5. I have got the Terminal uninstall command which opens Terminal. So far, so good. However, Terminal is asking me for my admin password but it's not allowing me to enter it. The cursor is not blinking it's just a solid black oblong - just bl**dy sitting there! Absolutely no response to any key except the enter key - then terminal helpfully says, 'Sorry, try again' What's going on? I just wanna get rid of Virex!!!
I recently purchased a powerbook G4 running version 10.5.8. I am able to login to everything and set my username as the administrator, but I can not set a password for it, if i try to input a password or change the password I get an error message saying I have input an incorrect password. When I purchased the computer everything was blank except for the user name was set as mac user, as I said I was able to change the username but not the password.
So i was resetting the admin password for a friend on his macbook and after i have done this ive had nothin but problems. After the reset it kept asking him for keychain passwords when he would try to open programs i got that taken care of but, now everytime he restarts his cmoputer he has to type in his password to login, he wants it set up so that he just hits the on button and thats its. I cant find what to do now,
This is so weird, but my brother discovered my password for my account that is the admin, he changed the password, he didn't select the login option with password, but i cant install apps. How can I restore my password?
Info: MacBook Pro (13-inch Early 2011), Mac OS X (10.6.8)
I forgot my admin password on my macbook pro which has the lion software. Is there anyway to reset it without bringing it in to the store, and getting charge too much money for it? I tried the steps that I found online and nothing seems to work!
I recently got my computer fixed and ended up getting a new one. it is a mac book laptop. I changed the password before it got sent and i completely forgot it. They backed my new laptop up with my old hard drive so now i got my old stuff on the new one. I want to download this application so i can fix this .zip file but i need the admin password. I've tried using the install discs but they tell me to enter the admin. I've tried putting the install disc in and pushing c on start up but it just freezes on the white screen with the apple. Is there something wrong with my computer? should i contact the insurance company who i dealt with?
So I had my Macbook repaired, the hard drive wiped clean and OS X snow leoprd reinstalled. When I arrived home I downloaded and installed OS X Lion. The Mac-authorized techy had left all of the passwords blank fo me to fill in. So how do I set the new Admin login pw?¬†
Factory refurb came with Leopard already installed, didn't include disks, and never prompted me to create admin info. Really just want to install Flash... Everytime I try to install it asks me for my admin username and password. Username is always filled in as "user", but password is blank.
