Hi there,

If the password ***** ok previously, check that CAPS LOCK is not turned on.

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
The password ***** now have to use is the one the people from MacKeeper assigned. I cannot change it because apparently I am not recognized as the administrator (I am the only person who uses this computer.) How do I get back to being the Administrator?
Expert:  Pete replied 2 years ago.
To give your account administrator privileges, go to System Preferences, and then click Users & Groups.
Click the lock icon to unlock it, and then type an administrator name and password.
Select a standard user or managed user in the list of users, and then select “Allow user to administer this computer.”
