    Default Admin user name change.. gone wrong

    Hi guys can anyone help me out? I've just bought a MacBook Pro from a friend (running 10.13.6.)

    The user name and password were set to User and password

    I wanted to update the user name but when doing this the Mac hung and now neither old or new password can not be used when installing software.

    When I turn on and login the old password is accepted (User / password) however when trying to installing neither new or old are accepted and I can not install anything.

    Any thoughts how I can fix this?

    Cheers,

    dEVS!

    Have you tried going into system preferences and adding a new user then signing in as that user? Might be a corrupt user profile.
