So, you can log into your mac fine, but can't add things like the declarer which probably use your appleID right?

computer is very slow and freezes also
Mac Support Specialist: Tim, Mac Enthusiast replied 2 years ago

That would have nothing to do with your password.

The slowness would have more to do with the operating system install than anything else. The Lost password ***** ***** diffierent

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
