Hi, I seem to have forgotten the password for my mac and need to update the software....any ideas how to do this without losing everything on my computer and without the disks?
Stick the 10.5 or 10.6 install disk into the computer and reboot holding c key down, under the Utilities menu is a password reset.
If your on 10.7, hold command r keys and reboot, access Terminal and type
and press enter.
So easy to crack a Lion Mac now.
