It is not my password XX my apple id but it is the password XXX my log in to my mac book Pro that i have forgotten.
OS 10.7.5. and the tick box for allowing you to reset the password XXXXX your apple id is not ticked.
My name is XXXXXXX XXX I am assisting my mother in law whose first language is not english. When she got the computer, she hooked up her old windows vista computer and all the info was sucked across. I dont know if this is when the password XXX set, as we have tried all of her commonly used passwords.
It Worked! Thank you very much.
