    My Macbook harddrive crashed recently with the "click of death" so I got it replaced. When I got my computer back, there was no log on needed. But now I have to install my printer and I need a password to do so and my old password doesn't work. What do I do? How do I get the security back?

    Go to System Preferences, Accounts, and make yourself an admin user, an admin user should be listed in the Accounts section.
