    I just purchased a used Mac Mini on ebay. I would like to download software but asks for user name and password. How do I set new user name and password? I have original OS X install disks.

    Let me back up a bit...OS X is already installed. I'm trying to load Adobe software, but it's asking for the password. I went to Applications > Utilities > Installer > double clicked on it, but nothings in there. Please redirect.
