I have inadvertantly set up my computer so that I need my password to log on. I must have set one when I orginally set up the computer over a year ago but have no clue as to what it is now. How can I go about over riding this and resetting it?

try booting the machine off a CD-ROM and changing the password. insert the disk and hold down the C or option key (depending on how new your machine is). if you can't do this, try removing the security program from the machine.

Well, I've solved part of my problem in that I figured out what password I used. Now, I need to figure out how to disable the feature that asks for a log in upon start-up. Any help would be appreciated.
