Question about Apple aluminum 13-inch MacBook laptop- Intel 2.1GHz l Core 2 Duo, 1GB 667MHz DDR2 SDRAM, 320 GB HD, ... Mac Notebook
Last month , i lost my windows administrator password. I solved my problem with the help of
windows password key 8.0. It worked perfectly to reset any local user account to a blank
password. Just an easy to use bootable CD/DVD . It can also be used on a USB Flash Drive. You
can download it from: http://www.lostwindowspassword.com/.

Here is your solution my friend,
This is a non-rebooting workaround for the situation where your login screen gets locked up because you mis-entered your login password three times while trying to log into an account on a Mac that has set a master password for FileVault (it does not matter if the account uses FileVault or not). The login box displays the error 'Type the master password to reset this user’s password and to unlock FileVault. Master Password hint: ...', with no ability to log in as the correct user with the correct password, or to log in as another user or back out of the FileVault password.
Here's how to unlock the stuck Mac without a reboot:
root 801 0.0 -0.2 337096 3628 ?? Ss 2:16PM 0:00.12 /System/Library/CoreServices/loginwindow.app/Contents/MacOS/loginwindow
aminuser 815 0.0 -0.0 18060 316 p2 R+ 2:17PM 0:00.00 grep loginwindow.app
[robg adds: It seems much simpler to me to just restart the locked-up Mac, but perhaps there are multiple users logged in, and you'd rather not lose their work. I haven't tested this one.]

Boot up from the OS install dvd, look under one of the menus at the top of your screen, should be called password utility or something. it'll let you reset it.
