Thank you Jake..
Lets try a few basic repairs first.. Starting with this one.
To open Disk Utility, from the Applications folder, open Utilities, and then double-click the Disk Utility icon.
In the column on the left, click your startup disk.
Click the First Aid tab, and then click Repair Disk Permissions. Disk Utility will reset any files and folders with incorrect settings.
Once that completes, Id like you to try and shut down the mac.. Start it in safe mode.. And then try to login to the original admin account you had before
Heres how to start in safe mode.
To start up into Safe Mode (to Safe Boot), do this:
- Be sure your Mac is shut down.
- Press the power button.
- Immediately after you hear the startup tone, hold the Shift key. The Shift key should be held as soon as possible after the startup tone, but not before the tone.
- Release the Shift key when you see the gray Apple icon and the progress indicator (looks like a spinning gear).
