    I don't restart my computer all that often, but I noticed that my computer icon wasn't updating the specs for it (I have the preference set to display the extra info for the drive). so i restarted my computer.

    When it came back up, it will no longer accept my password to login. Also, I had it set to automatically login. So I'm not sure why its asking me. But it wont accept the password anymore.

    Also, a little bit before I restarted, I insalled Macromedia Contribute 8 and it asked if it could access my keychain, then I deleted it (it was a 30 day trial anyways), could this have anything to do with it?

    Try restarting again, if that doesn't help then contact apple about a possible default password your OS has reverted back to.

    Just out of curiousity, what are you posting on?

    thanks for the advice.

    I'm at work right now and I have my computer here at work that I'm posting on. The computer thats messed up is my laptop thats sitting here next to me.

    You can reset the password if you boot from the OS X install/restore CD.
