after you done empty trash trend micro surfing should be delete already.

now after reboot, go to system preferences ---->>> account ( users and groups), select your username then click "login items" tab

select "tmloginMrg" from the list and check the little box next to it then click the (-) sign to removed it.

*make sure the lock icon at the bottom is unlock.

I emptied the trash basket and tried to download Flash. But when I click on download now, it flies away and does not download.

CompExpert :

try to go to link below and download it


 

CompExpert :

http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/4783/adobe-flash-player


 

CompExpert :

if that link still giving you problem.

open system preferences --->>> account ( users and groups) , click (+) sign and create a new admin account

then login to new admin account download adobe flash player, then save adobe flash player into a usb thumb drive or external hard drive.

then log back into your current username and installed it.

you can go back to system preferences --->> users and groups and removed your new admin account by select it and click the (-) sign

CompExpert :

I can't click on the + while the lock icon is locked. They want a password XXXXX unlock it.

3. boot menu will show up, select boot from recovery partition
4.



  • Wait for “Mac OS X Utilities” menu to appear, indicating that you are booted into recovery mode

  • Click on the “Utilities” menu and select “Terminal”

I got no where. I have to go out for dinner now. I'll be back on at about 10:30 your time, EDST.


Sorry. It is hard for me to comprehend how difficult this download and install process is.


I appreciate your patience.

CompExpert :

CompExpert :

seem like there are many missing piece to your problem.

just like as simply as installing a software.

I guess the reason you cannot install because of the admin password XXXXX also Trend Micro Smart software too

in order to solved your installation problem we have to fix all other stuff to make it works


 

CompExpert :

let me give you another method.


1. power off computer
2. power on computer right away hold down command and R keys, keep holding both keys until you get into mac osx utilities screen
3. look at the top menu bar, click on the word "utilities" ---->>> open terminal
4. terminal type in resetpassword then hit enter
5. reset password XXXXX will pop up, select the source on top which is your hard drive name
6. select your username account and type in new password, confirm new password, after that make sure you click "save"

now after you done, closed everything and reboot your computer


 

Customer:

I'm back

CompExpert :

welcome back, just follow the instruction above to reset your password


 

Customer:

I think it is done. I am going to try to download and install Flash now

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
