    Just got a new iMac- (and an iPad!) I wanted to add on third party software- Xmarks synch, to iMac. Downloaded, and in setting it up, it pops up a dialog box with my name and box for 'password.'


    what password?

    Did you setup an administrator password on the machine when first setting it up?

    If your data was migrated from your previous Mac, your password should still work. If from a PC, unless you specifically offered input on the password you wanted the store to use, you may not have a password. To test this theory, go to System Preferences->Accounts, and click the padlock in the lower left. Press enter/return without entering anything and if the padlock opens, then do the same for any other password prompts you get from the system. You can add a password by clicking the Change Password button. Note that you may have to re-enable Automatic Login (from Login Options) if you don't want to have to enter a password when you turn on the computer.
