    Just how are you trying to go about this task? To reformat the C Drive, you need to boot from a Windows CD Are you doing this?

Installing WINDOWS?
Don't enter a password for the Administrator account at this time.
Just press the [Enter] key and go to the next step.
Why? Because most people will forget what they keyed in during installation. Whenever you need assistance, most experts will know the password.
Change it later when you want to increase security.
Hope this helps!

Mac loads and runs fine, but every time I try to update the programs on my Mac it keeps asking for a password, I don't know.


Which program were you trying to update? Are you trying to download and install new software (that is not from Apple App Store?) Are you running Mountain Lion (OSX 10.8)? The password needed is your administrator password.

Wait at least a half hour before trying again. That is a common lock out period, though not used in home situations. Ask if someone changed it. The options are not good.

You need to get the password!


Get them to unlock / give you the password. This can be more serious than expected.

There are two options you have. You can either acquire an OS (Operating System) disc to reformat the drive and reinstall the OS or you can return it to first user using the Single User boot mode.
The first option is easiest and erases their data so you don't have to worry about it being there.
The second option requires knowing some basic terminal commands.Final note: Have you tried just pressing enter on the login screen? Many times people don't have passwords but it will still ask for them.
