I am one nervous dude. I don't know my administrator name, or my password (had OSX installed at a now-defunct retail). I do have the OSX Install disc but I'm worried I might screw up something.Reading the instructions on reset the admin password using the disc when you go to "reset password," do you have to know the old one or does the install ddisc automatically assume you are the 'administrator?

Also, I have FileVault turned off...should that have been turned on all along? Another question-how do you know if there is a virus protection program installed on your computer. Thanks to all who can 'educate' this old man.
