    Recover forgotten Admin password

    My iMac is just over a year old. I was advised to set up an Admin password different from the username and password I use for routine logging on. Some updates are requesting the Admin password before proceeding. My original carton and materials were left in the attic with my ex following divorce, which means they might as well be in Timbuktu. Any advice on recovering or resetting the password? New forum member - - if posted on wrong forum, please redirect me. Thanks!!
