I am trying to sign in to install adobe flash player and i receive a pop up box that indicates I need to enter my password. Is that for Adobe or for my iMac? I have tried both and neither seem to work. Any suggestions?
I've branched your question to a new thread, as it was unrelated to the thread you posted in.
This password prompt is presented by your operating system, and is intended to keep you from accidentally installing software.
If this is your personal machine and you don't need a password to log into the computer when it first starts up, you can probably leave the password blank and click OK to get past this prompt. If this is your personal machine and your normal password isn't working, check to make sure that CAPS LOCK is off, and type the password carefully.
If this is your work machine and it's asking for an Administrator password, well, you'll need to have a conversation with your friendly IT person.
If you're still stumped, you may need to reset the password on your Mac:
