    First, that Terminal command is NOT the correct way to reset your password. Second, it's probably best at this point to reinstall your OS, as something is likely fairly screwed up. 10.5.4 is also not even close to being fully up-to-date for Leopard, so I suggest that once you reinstall, you also run Software Update multiple times, until it stops offering you updates.

    If you need more help, please try to write out your exact problems in plain English, I understand if it's not your first language or something like that, but do your best, because it is kinda hard to understand how to help you right now.

    Question one: what is the correct Terminal command for rest or reinstall the Mac os without cd.

    You can't reinstall without a DVD. There's nothing on your system that will allow that, Terminal or not. You need the 10.5 install DVD that you used the first time.

    I advice you to do a clean install, with reformatting of the hard drive.
    Not just "upgrade" - because, if you choose "upgrade", there is a chance that this bad thing will stay.
    However, don't forget to backup your important files to external hard drive before formatting.

    Install 10.6 Snow Leopard - or 10.7 Lion, if your CPU supports it.
