Question: Why doesn't my iMAC recognize my iCloud/Apple password.

My iMAC (Retina 4K, 21.5-inch, Late 2015) with iOS 10.13.3 does not recognize my iCloud/Apple password. I have tried using the verification code and using it to sign in but the iMac still doesn't recognize it. The password works fine on my iPhone and iPad.

IMac, iPod touch

If it works in the Safe Mode, try running this program when booted normally and then copy and paste the output in a reply. The program was created by Etresoft, a frequent contributor.
