    I've been trying to install new softwares online and the Installer asked from my Mac Name and Password. I forgot what was my password, I even tried with the hint it gave but I still couldn't remember it. Is there a way I can retrieveor reset my password without rebooting my whole mac?

    Mac OS X 10.7.5

    Thank you.

    Simply rebooting will not reset your password. How can you forget it if you have to use it every time you log in or do many other functions?
