IMac (Intel) :: System Administrator Is Using ICloud Password To Log In And Unlock Screen

Dec 4, 2014

In my User & Groups, it shows that a System Administrator with standard access is the current user for my iMac.A "System Administrator" is using an iCloud password to log in and unlock the screen. I cannot delete the user, nor change their password.I am running OS X Yosemite 10.10.1I purchased the iMac from a school closing auction.I know little of apple computers - be gentle.

I want to remove the "System Administrator" who recently appeared (within the last few days).How do I make my computer more secure? (I changed my iTunes password already.)

Info:
iMac, OS X Yosemite (10.10.1)

Intel Mac :: Changed Access Password - How To Get Recovery Key To Unlock System

May 22, 2012

I bought my first IMac last month. I changed my access password yesterday and now I can use my computer. It does not like the password I am typing. It asks me to get a Recovery Key. I have contacted Apple support and they told me to do a Recovery using the Command key and R at the beginning of the session. I have done that and it brings me back to the unlock my system with a password.†How do I get a recovery key to unlock my system?

IMac (Intel) :: How To Bypass Administrator Password

Jul 1, 2014

I am running OS X Mavericks, and when I want to, let's say, install a Sims 3 game, it asks for my administrator password. Now since someone else owns the computer (and they don't want me to know their password but I can install the games with their permission) I don't know the admin password, and I want to know, is there a way to bypass that admin password without having to reset it to a pass I know? Or do I just have to deal with the fact that I have to ask?

MacBook Pro :: Swap The Graphics System Without An Administrator Password?

Apr 10, 2012

I have a mid-2009, 2.66 GHz MacBook Pro (MacBookPro5,3). The computer has dual graphics chipsets, an NVidia 9400m and 9600M GT, both with 256 MB of VRAM. To change between the two, the user must select which one he or she wants to use. However, that user must have administrator privileges. 

I am not the administrator. Is there a way I can have the graphics system permanently set to the higher-performance chipset, because the system seems to automatically default to the 9400m. It is annoying to contact my administrator every time I need to run a high performance game or aggressively use SketchUp, Final Cut, etc.

IMac Intel :: Unable To Turn On System / No Fans Start Up And The Screen Does Nothing

Jan 25, 2007

My parents recently bought an iMac. Yesterday my mom was playing a game when the computer froze. Neither force quit or holding the power button was doing anything so in her frustration she unplugged the system. Today, after plugging in the system again, it won't turn on.

I press the power button on the side of the wireless keyboard and the green light on the keyboard turns on for about 3 sec and then starts flashing. No fans start up and the screen does nothing.

OS X :: Keychain Access - Password To Unlock?

Oct 13, 2010

I recently created a Sparse Disk Image that I've password protected. When I try to open the Disk Image I get a popup window that has the words "Keychain Access" as the window title and the following text below that: "To perform this action you must unlock the keychain. Please enter the keychain password." Now, this is pretty straight forward (obviously). My question is, how do I (once I've unlocked the keychain and opened the Disk Image) immediately lock the keychain again so that if I step away from my computer my keychain isn't still open?

OS X :: Reset Administrator Password - Root Changes

Jan 13, 2009

I just bought a used Emac running 10.3.9. The previous owner does not remember the administrator password nor did I realize how important it is to have. I have the original install discs and did boot using the disc. I then went under the install menu and chose reset password. I changed the user password but have been unsuccessful at changing the admin password. The drop down menu in password reset gave me the option of Administrator (root), Application, or finally user. I have read a couple of articles cautioning not to change or work with root changes.

OS X :: Administrator / Password / Keychain Login

Sep 14, 2010

A week ago, my computer (Macbook) "crashed". When I powered it up, it would go to the grey apple screen, then it would go to a blue screen, then it would switch to a light blue screen, then back to the darker blue screen, etc and never fully boot into OSX. I finally found my install discs for OSX and reinstalled my operating system from scratch, formatted my hard drive, and started new. Once I reinstalled, I realized how outdated and different everything looked... and I realized I was running OSX 10.4. So from there, I found my Leopard disc (10.5), put that in, and "Upgraded" my system to 10.5.

And basically here's where I'm at now:........................

OS X :: Type Administrator Name And Password To Make Changes

Nov 17, 2007

After upgrading to Leopard, when I try to install or update any program on my computer it asks for the Administrator username and password. Well that should not be a problem seeing as how I am the administrator and so I type in my name and my password and it says "you must type an administrator's name and password to make changes to software update." So I went to system settings and checked and it no longer has my account as the administrator and I can't make any changes because I am not the administrator no more. After installing Leopard, this has happened. What should I do? (I am fairly new to Macs, I have had my Macbook about 3 months.) I also noticed that my Macbook (when I shut it) has started to wake itself up from sleep mode and stay that way while it's still closed.
