I have had a new imac for 6-7 months now and love it. I am using 10.6

I have a question...I tried to run a program and the response I got was username and administrative password. I don't remember them. Is there any way of retrieving them? If not can they be changed?

ANY assistanmce would be appreciated

trouble with admin password reset


Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu). Also advise us if you have any antivirus or "cleaning" software installed on your Mac. If you are using MacKeeper, you are hereby advised to uninstall it.
