    What version of Mac OS X does it currently have installed? Unless FileVault is enabled, you an reset the password. Otherwise, it's very easy to install a version copy of OS X.
    Until the next time… And if I help you out, give me a "Thanks!" Thanks!

    I assume that as this is in a 10.6 forum, you have Snow Leopard.

    Follow these steps: Mac OS X 10.6: If you forget your administrator password

    I would upgrade to a new system when you have access.
