Macintosh OS/blocked plug ins.
QUESTION: My mac os x needs an update "adobe flash player" as a result of blocked plug ins. I follow the instructions all the wat to a window that shows who the computer belongs to and asks for a password...a password was never entered into the computer..A hint is given: place where you were married..easy to ans. but computer says its wrong..I also am given a window that allows the chaingeing of the password, but since i don't know the old password, I can't change the password...Is there a way to by pass the "password" so i can download the flash player..thank you.
Do you have your system disk used to install? If you have that, there is an override that you can do to reset the computer's password. I won't go into detail now, but we can cross that bridge when I know you have access to a disk.

QUESTION: yes, I have an imac application install DVD. I will be awaiting your response. Thank you for your time.
While I was looking for my files on resetting the password, I came across these sites. I think they have more information than I do, so I decided to go this route. I did a Google search for <Password Override OS X>. I picked two that I hope will be what you need. But if they are not, pop over to Google and see which ones match what you need. I realized I didn't know which version of OS X you are using and in my search, I found there are ways to do it without the disk as well --- if this doesn't do the trick, I will keep digging for my file.
Here's to a successful recovery of your computer freedoms!
