Please help!!! When I start my computer, it automatically takes me to my account, so I haven't needed my password for a while.  However, I am now trying to download Adobe Flash Player and it's asking me for my administrator password.


I tried to reset using my Apple ID but my iMac is not giving me that option. 


I've seen other posts that are saying to press Command + R after restarting the iMac--I've tried that but I don't I get the same options because I have OSX 10.8 but I'm not sure. I didn't want to play around with it too much because I was afraid of messing with things that should be left alone.


Anyway, please help! I will be eternally grateful.

iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
