Turn off the computer. Then turn it back on and keep pressing the F8 button. It should bring you to a big menu and one of the options will be "safe mode". Choose "safe mode" and then let it boot up into safe mode and see if you can choose any of the users to log in with.

How do i...reset a password on Netflix?


You can reset it using the following steps

I forgot my Netflix login or password. Can't sign in to Netflix? Send yourself a password reset email. The email should arrive within about a minute, and contains a link that will sign you into Netflix automatically. From there, you'll be asked to create a new password. The link in the email expires after 24 hours, so be sure to use it as soon as possible.
If the link in the email has expired, don't worry--you can always send yourself another password reset email.

I sent myself the email, but never received it.

Solution: Check your spam folder (and any email filters you've set up) to make sure the message isn't being directed away from your email inbox.

The link in the email isn't working for me.

Solution:
  1. Delete any Netflix password reset emails that you might have sent to yourself.
  2. Once you have deleted the emails, go to netflix.com/clearcookies.
  3. Now go to https://www.netflix.com/LoginHelp.
  4. Type in your email, then select Continue.
  5. Go back to your email and follow the steps in the new Netflix password reset email.
If you're still having trouble, use a different computer, smartphone, or tablet to access the email, then click the link.
We have troubleshooting steps that can help if you're Unable to Save Changes to Your Netflix Account Information.

Resetting a password without an additional account Use these steps to reset a password when there is only one administrator account on the computer, or if the original administrator account needs a password reset.
"Original" administrator account refers to the one that was created immediately after installing Mac OS X. If the original administrator password is known, that administrator account may be used to reset the passwords of other administrator accounts using the steps described above. These steps require an optical drive; if your Mac does not have an optical drive and you have a Mac OS X v10.6 Install disc, see below.
  1. Start up from a Mac OS X Install disc (one whose version is closest to the version of Mac OS X installed). Usually, you can start from the disc by putting it in your computer, restarting, and holding the C key. Or, put it in the computer and click the Install or Restore icon you see in the disc's main window (after which the computer will start from the disc without you needing to hold C). Or, you can use Startup Manager or the Startup Disk preference pane to select the Install disc.
  2. Choose a language, click the arrow button to continue,
  3. Mac OS X v10.6 or later: Choose Password Reset from the Utilities menu.
    Mac OS X v10.5 or v10.4: Choose Reset Password from the Utilities menu.
    Mac OS X v10.3: Choose Reset Password from the Installer menu.

    Tip: If you don't see this menu or menu choice, you're probably not started from the disc yet.

    Note: The default keyboard layout is U.S. English while started from the installation disc. If you use a keyboard layout other than U.S English, use the Input menu (the flag icon on the right side of the menu bar) to select the desired layout before typing a new password.
  4. Select your Mac OS X hard disk volume.
  5. Select the user name of your original administrator account.

    Important: Do not select "System Administrator (root)". This is actually the root user. You should not confuse it with a normal administrator account.

    >
  6. Enter a new password.
  7. Click Save.
  8. Click the red button in the upper left corner to quit the application.
  9. Choose Quit Mac OS X Installer... from the Mac OS X Installer menu.
  10. Click Restart.
After following these steps, you need to update your keychain so that it recognizes the new password.
If your computer doesn't have an optical drive, connect it to a computer that does using Target Disk Mode, or use the Remote Install Mac OS X utility to start up the computer remotely. Resetting a user's password in Mac OS X v10.5 or earlier If you are using an earlier version of OS X, select your version number below for password reset instructions. Avoid setting a blank password for a user account when using these steps. Mac OS X v10.3 through 10.5.8
  1. Log in with an administrator account. Tip: If you don't know the password of any administrator accounts, see "Resetting the original administrator account password" above.
  2. From the Apple menu choose System Preferences.
  3. From the View menu choose Accounts.
  4. Click the lock button if it appears locked; enter the administrator password.
  5. Select the name of the user whose password you want to change.
  6. Click the Reset Password button or the Change Password button.
  7. Enter a new password in both the New Password and Verify fields, and add a Password Hint if desired.
  8. Click the Reset Password button or the Change Password button.
  9. If a dialog box appears with the message "Your Keychain password will be changed to your new account password," click OK.
Mac OS X v10.2 through v10.2.8 Use Accounts preferences to reset an account password.
  1. Log in with an administrator account. Tip: If you don't know the password of any administrator accounts, see "Resetting the original administrator account password" above.
  2. From the Apple menu choose System Preferences.
  3. From the View menu choose Accounts.
  4. Click the lock button if it appears locked.
  5. Select the username whose password you want to change.
  6. Click Edit User.
  7. Navigate to the New Password field.
  8. Enter a new password in both the Password and Verify fields.
  9. Click OK.
  10. If a dialog box appears with the message "Your Keychain password will be changed to your new account password," click OK.
Regardless of how many characters are actually in a Mac OS X v10.2 password, seven bullet characters (•••••••) will appear in the New Password and Verify fields the next time the password is edited. Mac OS X v10.1.5 or earlier Use the Users preference pane to reset a the password.
  1. Log in with an administrator account. Tip: If you don't know the password of any administrator accounts, see "Resetting the original administrator account password" above.
  2. From the Apple menu choose System Preferences.
  3. From the View menu choose Users.
  4. Click the lock button if it appears locked.
  5. Select the username whose password you wish to change.
  6. Click Edit User.
  7. Enter a new password in both the Password and Verify fields.
  8. Click Save.
Important: Passwords for administrator accounts should not be blank.

Regardless of how many characters are actually in the password, thirteen bullet characters (•••••••••••••) will appear in the Password and Verify fields the next time the password is edited.

Too many attempts to unlock
Which email account ?
Unlocking your Hotmail account after it has been locked due to too many failed log in attempts can be done using Microsoft's automated password reset system.

The feature has been put in place to protect users from crackers and scammers who would then use the account to steal your personal information and that of your contacts'.

It's a good idea to regularly cycle your passwords to increase the security of your correspondence.

Navigate to account.live.com/ResetPassword.aspx.
Select "I forgot my password."


Click "Reset my password."
Enter your Hotmail email address and the letters in the displayed picture.


Click "Next." A new password will now be emailed to the alternate email account you've listed in your profile.

You can use this password to log into your now-unlocked Hotmail account.
Yahoo

If you suspect that someone has hacked your Yahoo! account or if you attempt to log in your account too many times with an incorrect password, Yahoo! might lock you out of your account.

After several failed login attempts, the Yahoo! security feature locks your account for a predetermined amount of time to prevent unauthorized users from accessing your account.

Unauthorized users might use your account to send unsolicited emails or intrude on your private content and emails.

Although being locked out of your Yahoo! account can be frustrating, you can gain access to your account and change your password after the lock expires.

Wait 24 hours.
Return to the Yahoo! website and click the "Sign In" link at the top of the page.


Click "I Can't Access My Account."
Select "I Forgot My Password" or "My Password Doesn't Work" from the list of options.

Click the "Next" button to proceed.
Enter your Yahoo! ID in the "My Yahoo! ID is" field.


Enter the security code in the "Enter the Code Shown" field. Click the "Next" button.

Click "I Cannot Access Any of the Above" and click the "Next" button.
Type the answers to the security questions in the appropriate fields.

You set these security quests when you created your Yahoo! Account.
Click "Next."


Enter a new password in the field and verify the password by retyping it in the field.
Click the "Next" button and Yahoo! resets your password.

The new password is effective immediately, allowing you to sign in your Yahoo! account.
