I have an iMac shared with another Mac (Mini) on my home wifi network. Yesterday I updated the OS on my Mac Mini to Mavericks, and now I am being denied access to the iMac. I have tried re-entering my usual login/password but it is not being recognised, even though I have not changed any of my security details. Why can I no longer log in, and how can I regain access?

Have you looked at what software updates are available for the Mac mini? There may have been one related to remote management or screen sharing and that cloud be the issue.
