    I have a MacBook Pro 2008. Unfortunately I forgot my username and password in my Mac, so I can't create or delete any files. Is it possibe to do something with it, or I have to reload the new OS?

    The OP still needs the discs to reset, and any search online will probably reveal alternate methods...

    You need to make sure you create the new account with a different user name to your old account.
