Running OS X 10.7.5 and the lock is on in users and groups section of the system preferences and Apple ID is not ticked off for allowing to change password. What can I do????
Follow the instructions in the beige and green boxes.
You should now be able to log in with the new password, but you won't be able to unlock the Keychain. If you've forgotten the Keychain password (which is ordinarily the same as your login password), there's no way to recover it. You’ll need to reset your keychain in the preferences of the Keychain Access application.
