    Hi there,

    I am a mac newbie and need help as this problem is driving me tits!

    Every time I want to change a setting in my macbook i have to "click the lock to make changes".

    How do I change my settings so I can make these changes without having to enter a password everytime?

    Also; my account type is admin so I thought I didnt have to do this?

    Cheers, Petehab

    You probably have the "require password for each secure system preference" setting enabled in Security, in System Preferences. Turn this off.
