You didnt change the administrator, you added a profile. SO all the stuff you were using is still in your friends name. You will have to go in as the administrator under his name, and put all your stuff on an external and log back in as yourself and put it on your side.

1. LOG OUT - Hit apple in top left corner, select log out, it will bring up 2 profiles, go in that way.
2. SYSTEM STARTUP - on desktop in whoever's profile click apple in top left, preference and then startup disk, select your profile and it will go to you all the time. Hope this helps.

Here is how to reset your Linksys wireless router to the factory default settings in order to clear any existing properties.

  • Note: All your settings will be lost including WEP encryption information, MAC Address filtering information, and any SSID information you have entered. The router user name and password will revert to the default of admin as the user name and no password.

To reset your Linksys BEFW11S4 router to the factory default settings:

  1. Hold the reset button on the back panel of the Linksys router for 30 seconds. All your settings will be lost including WEP encryption information, MAC Address filtering information, and any SSID information you have entered. The router password will revert to the default of Admin and all user name information will be removed.

I mistakenly changed the hard drive name on my MacBook and have lost access to iPhoto and iMusic files. Is there a way to recover my previous desktop and access settings?


I take it that you have forgotten the original name of the hard drive if not just rename the disk. Failing that go into itunes go to preferences and then click on the Advanced tab and you can then change where you media files are.

For iphoto look at this article on the apple website

Hope this helps

Master password is lost on mac mini


You should read the Apple Support article on changing/creating a password for the admin account. From there you can control the other accounts. BTW a common mistake is to have the Caps Lock key on. -Ken

Lost my XP Admin name and password. So how do I hack it?


well hacking is illegal wether it is your own system or not i can not confirm.

best advise i can give you is see if the administrator account is on.

wich would most likely be :
username : Administrator
password :

yes password would be nothing.
if it works you can reset your password of your own account

good luck
