Hi, and welcome to JustAnswer! My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am excited to get started with you.

So I can better assist you with your issue, I will need additional information. Are you referring to your computer's login password?

Customer:

yes i do believe so

Customer:

keychain too

Customer:

I have been getting a message " kcproxy wants your confidential info stroed in USB 308 in your keychain"

Appleologist :

Does it give you an option to allow?

Normally when you get that message, you have an option to choose allow. Basically if you are trying to access something that requires your authorization, you will receive that message which requires you to choose allow

Customer:

hello, ?

Appleologist :

Did you get my last response?

Appleologist :

Are you able to see my responses?

Customer:

Appleologist :

Ok so that takes care of that. Now lets move on to getting your password XXXXX flash

Customer:

Can you initiate the flash update process again. When it ask for your password, hit enter

Appleologist :

When you hit enter, did it disappear or did the box shake?

Customer:

Appleologist :

Ok so that may mean it worked and you do not have a password. Is it currently installing?

Customer:

i didn't close i was affraid it shut down everything

Appleologist :

You will need to close safari in order for it to install. This means you do not have a password, so simply hit enter whenever your computer asks for it.This also means you will loose me during the install. Was there anything els I can assist you with before you install flash?

You do not have a password. You will just need to hit enter

Hi Stephen,

I apologize for the system issues we are having.

 

Within system preferences, choose accounts

Or it may say user and groups. Then click on the lock in the bottom right corner. It will ask you for your password. Simply hit enter. If it unlocks then you are all set and ready to go

If you need anything in the near future, I would be more than happy to assist you. (You will not be a bother to me :) Have a fantastic rest of your day
