    Angry Username Password Error for administration actions
    Hello all,

    I am currently having a strange issue with my username and password.

    I am working on a late 2009 iMac running High Sierra. I wanted to change the username "User" and the password "password". So I went in to the user and groups, unlocked the settings, right clicked advance setting and changed the info. I resetting the computer.

    I logged back in but the username was still "User" but the password that worked was the new password. Strange.

    I am now in the computer so I go to install the new chrome but my username and password is incorrect :0.

    I dont understand how i can get on to the computer but not be able to do any administration actions.

    Can anyone help me out please?

    Thank you
