How to bypass login password

By rjbaker ·
Hi, I have a client who has made some changes to her mac, and now when it boots, theres a login that wasn't there before that requires a password, (which she doesn't have). What can she do to access her mac (running OS X.2 Jaguar) and turn off this login procedure?

See the section on resetting the password on an administrator
account at the following url [watch for spaces]:

<http://tinyurl.com/ii6i>

Once the password is reset, the login procedure can then be
restored.

This is assuming that the login referred to is for an account on
the Mac. If it is for some other service that she installed or
activated at startup, then that would depend on what was
actually changed.

HTH,

paul

The tinyurl above doesn't seem to work from this site; here is the
full url
<http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=106156>

And if that doesn't work, the last six digits refer to an article ID in
Apple's support database. :)

FWIW, identified the "problem" with the above link: the last caret
(&gt is appended to the href value. Live and learn.

Hello,

If your user has an original install CD you can use it to reset the password. Boot the computer on the CD and then choose reset password from the file menu. Once you have logged in you can then disable the auto login option within the Account preference pane in System Preferences.

I hope this helps.
