    I can't log into my user account
    Hello wonderful people!
    Merry Christmas and happy new year!
    I need your help, please.
    I had 3 yuzer account
    I deactivated the Guest account.
    Now, after a few days I can not log into my account.
    The password is absolutely correct.
    I logged in the account of my husband and I changed the password.
    The only thing I get back is the sheet with accounts (mine and my husbands).
    I have no idea why and what happened
    Could someone have remote access to my account?(My email was hacked)
    Please, if you have any idea, help me!
    Very best regards to you all

    Specs:
    MacBook Pro 13.3" (2009), 2.53Ghz Core 2 Duo, 8GB 1066Mhz DDR3 RAM, 500GB Momentus XT Hybrid
    Here's a link to an Apple webpage that has the info you need

    Mac OS X: Changing or resetting an account password

    Look for: Resetting the original administrator account password on the webpage.

    Good luck.

    If you're having any problems -- send me a message.

    I am having the same problem! My brother has been using my Mac for the past week. I set up a user account for him to work with.
    Now when I try to log into my own account, I can enter the password , but then the screen goes blank and returns to the log-in screen again!

    I changed my password from a guest account but I still cannot get onto my own Admin account...please tell me there's an easy fix for this?!

    Boot the machine with your original install DVD and reset the password that way. For help with this, see the following LINK.

    Hmmm I have no idea what I did with that DVD! Must have a look for it.

    Do you know if this problem means that I have lost all the stuff that was in my account? Like bookmarks, and the stuff on my desktop?

    No, the data is still there. You just need to get access to it. Find your original install DVD or buy a new one.
