My login pswd has always allowed me to make sys pref changes, new installs etc., however, I messed something up and my HD is completely locked down. I can still login but now to allow any change to the system (reinstalling OS, moving folders to new location, unlocking sys prefs...) I'm asked for an Adminstrator's name and password which I've never set up. How do I unlock or get back to my original one password does all? I'm the only user and have never needed layers of security on my iMac at home. I've tried reseting user and admin pswds using terminal cmnd 'resetpassword'. Login works but everything remains locked. HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!
