    My son left me his old MacBook Pro but he forgot the name and password for it. Is there any way to get in it?

    The link is good. Try again or reset your browser and try again.

    The link works now. I will see if that can help. Now I have to find where he put the disk, easier said than done.

    Do you have the restore DVDs? If so you can boot to the DVD...wait for it to get to the install screen. The click on the menus at the top. One of them will let you either change the admin password or create a new user account or change the existing user accounts password. Hope that helps.

    odd thing between lion and safari with (surprisingly) apple site links:
    they often don't load on first connect, you have to reload the page....
