    I took my G5 to Compusa to have the hard drive replaced under Applecare.

    When I got it back I downloaded the latest version of iTunes. When I go to install it, in the "Authenticate" window it asks for my Name and Password.

    I have typed in what I believe was my Administrator password and it is rejecting it.

    What can I do?

    Pop in your restore DVD.
    Start up off of it by holding the C key during startup.
    In the menu bar you should find a reset password command.
