Hi;


Instructions for the Mac OS X Password Recovery.
Although there’s no real way to recover a lost root password, you can change the root password even if you do not know the current one. You must have physical access to the machine in order to accomplish this task.

1. Click Restart at the login window
2. While the computer is restarting, hold down “Command-S” until you see text scrolling through the window. This boots the computer into single user mode.
3. At the Localhost% prompt type:
/sbin/fsck -y
/sbin/mount -uw /
/sbin/SystemStarter
You will then see various services starting up.
4. When the Localhost% prompt reappears, type:
passwd [username]
It will then ask you to type the new root password twice, so do so.
(Though I’ve not tried it, it appears you can type niutil -list . /users to get a list if users if you do not know the username….if someone wants to verify this, I would be most appreciative).
5. After entering the new password, type:
reboot
6. At the login window, enter the username with the new password. Once you are logged in, you can use the Multiple Users application (/Applications/Utilities) to change your user’s password, or create a new user account.
Note: this may not work for newer versions of OS X; I think they did something about it in a security update. I hope this helps you with Macintosh password recovery.


Note: give some times between tasks, Follow to the letter.

SOURCE: how to reset the name and password on my mac book

You are trying to do something that has been disallowed by the administrator,
To do so you have to have the Admin acces (Admin Password)

As you stated this has been used by someone else earlier, so you have to contact him.

If you cant do that, there is also one more solution. to remove the admin password.

To do so, THE BEST OF ALL is to download the Hirens boot CD, (This is the ultimate tools collection for you PC, and FREE)

Download here, and burn it on a CD, boot from it and goto the Password recovery menu. There are lot of tools in it.

If you don't want to go throught this long process (which i will not recommend, its very usefull CD)

Even though, the tool that this CD uses, and i'v also tested it can be downloaded here.
Its call NTPWD.

Just burn it on CD, or copy in the USB (Boot from CD or USB)

run ntpwd.exe ( it will ask you which account to remove the password ).
Kinda its done, if properly follwed the steps.

If helpful, Kindly Do Rate

Forgot my Password/login - need a new account


People sometimes forget their email username or password even both.
Fortunately, you can retrieve your username if you can supply some information that verifies your identity.
However, if you forget your password, you must select a new one.
You will need access to the alternate email address you supplied when you created your current email account.

Go to your email program and click the link under the sign-in fields to recover a lost email ID or password.
The title of this link may vary, depending on your email program.
For instance, look for "Can't access your account?" in Gmail and look for "I can't access my account" in Yahoo! Mail.
Clicking this link will take you to a page with several options.
Select the appropriate option to retrieve your email ID.
For instance, select "I forgot my username" in Gmail and "I forgot my Yahoo! ID" in Yahoo! Mail.

Enter the alternate email address you provided when you signed up for the email account.
You may have to enter other information as well, such as your date of birth, country of residence and zip code.
Go to the email account for the address you provided.
Open the account recovery message from your email service provider to view your username.
If your username is not provided, there should be a link.
Follow the directions included in the message to retrieve your username with this link.
Reset Your Password
Click the link beneath the log-in fields on your email account sign-in page.
In Hotmail, this link is titled "Forgot your password?" and "Trouble signing in?" in BigString.
Choose the relevant option on the following page to retrieve your password.
Type in your user ID and press the "Enter" key.
The email program automatically sends a message to your alternate email address.
Go to your alternate email account and open the message from your email service provider. Follow the directions in the message to reset your password.
Recover Old Email Accounts
Important information can sometimes be sent to an old email address that you no longer use.
For instance, if you registered a domain name, a website hosting account, a PayPal, or eBay account with an old email address but forgot to update your account when you switched email providers, then messages sent by those sites will be overlooked.
Finding old email accounts is not that difficult, especially because email users tend to use the same user name, or variations of it, for all email accounts.
If you know, or have an idea of what the old user name was, then retrieving, or changing the password is simple, but each email server uses a different user name or password retrieval method.

Call your internet provider and tell them you have forgotten your email account.
Give them your name and account number, found on your monthly statement.
In some cases the Internet provider will want to email this information to you.
Be sure they send the information to the alternate email address which you can access.
You don't want them to send messages to the email address you can't currently access.
The internet provider will ask you the security question you selected when signing up for the account.
If you can't remember what you selected, then the customer service representative may ask for a user name, your address, or the telephone number under which you registered the account.
Reset the password with the customer service representative over the phone.
The representative will help you change the user name if needed and reset the password so you can access the account again.
Yahoo Email
Go to the Yahoo mail page which asks you for your Yahoo ID.
Click on "I can't access my account."
Make the appropriate selection from the choices.
If you choose "I can't remember my user ID" then Yahoo will have you answer the "secret questions" they asked when you signed up.
These questions will be something like: "What was your first car?" or "Who was your third grade teacher?" If you answer coincides with the answer you gave when you signed up for the account.
Yahoo will give you your user ID.
After recovering your user ID, click on "I can't access my account" again and select "I can't remember my password," then click next and you will be taken to a change password screen, where you can change your password.
Start using your old Yahoo email account.
MSN Hotmail Email
Go to the Hotmail, or the MSN ID page, where it asks for your user name and password
Enter your user ID.
Unfortunately, MSN requires you to remember the user ID.
Click on "I have forgotten password"
Choose whether you want your password mailed to you or changed.
Unless you have registered a secondary email, if you choose email then the password will be sent to the account you can't access.
If you want to change password then you will be asked the security questions you specified when you registered the account.
Questions are something similar to, "Mothers birth place?" You may also be asked for your zip code, or address.
Enter a new password.
Enter anew password when the MSN ID page loads again and access your old email account.
Gmail Email
Access the Gmail ID page and click on "I can't access my account."
Choose the appropriate selection from the page that loads.
Options include, "I have forgotten my password" and "I have forgotten my user name."
If you select "I forgot user name," then click on "retrieve user name page," which you will see further down on the page.
Enter the alternate e-mail with which you registered the account.
The user name will be sent to that email.
Select "I have forgotten my password" If you know your user name then choose and click on "retrieve password" page.
Enter your user name on the page that comes up and then answer the confidential question that is asked.
Send password reset instructions to an alternate email and access your old Gmail email account.

My computer program was updated but now I have to type in my e-mail address and password to access my e-mail


After the program update, the computer has lost it's autofill data. So even if you have kept "keep me signed in" box checked in, the browser cannot provide the login credentials to the Yahoo Mail Server.

So, you must provide the credentials and keeping the "keep me signed in" box checked in you have to login to your account. The next time your browser will not ask you again for ID and Password.

Hope this helps, Mrityunjay.

My account in facebook has been hacked and i also forgot my yahoo mail id to retrieve .i can only remember my id in facebook but i forgot my password..hope u can help me to retrieve it please .i will wait...


I recommend you contact your email provider to ask for a new password for your login email address. Below are links to the password recovery pages for a few popular email providers.

Gmail
Hotmail
Yahoo

For email providers other than those listed above, please visit your email provider's help center.

Once you have regained access to your login email, try resetting your Facebook password here.
Sorry, there is no other way.
Some people claim to recover your password with some software, but they can only retrieve this password from saved informations in your computer. If that password was changed, then there is nothing you can do.

I'm having problems logging in to my email


Have you tried the Yahoo sign-in wizard? That will help retrieve (or reset) password, among other steps. See:
https://edit.yahoo.com/forgot

Additional help info available from Yahoo at:
http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/classic/account/

Or you may be able to retrieve the password from the computer's browser (if you have accessed Yahoo from that computer). You can do that with some free software:
YahooPasswordDecryptor by SecurityXploded
Download the program:
http://www.securityxploded.com/yahoo-password-decryptor.php
and then install. The program will display the user ID and password for any Yahoo account accessed from that machine.

If you use Firefox as your web browser, it's much easier to retrieve a stored password. Just go to Tools > Options > Security > Saved Passwords > Show Passwords
