    I received this computer about two years ago and at first used it a few times and then stopped, and now I don’t remember the admin password. And the thing is that anything I want to do, like update an app, etc, the pop up appears for me to put in the password. I have tried to download several apps that state they can help with the retrieving of the password, but after downloading, I get the same pop up wanting the password. I do not have flash player and it will not let me install it. What can I do. I am so frustrated.
