This is nothing that a clean install of Mac OS X won't fix! But if you want to reset the password and see what there is on the system and send the guy a CD or DVD of his files you can do the following.


Insert the Mac OS X CD and restart the Mac while pressing down the the letter C Key. , which starts up the Mac from theCD and launches the Mac OS X installer.

On the first installer screen choose Installer --> Reset Password. When the Reset Password screen appears, click the hard drive that contains Mac OS X. From the first pop-up menu, choose the name of the account that you want to reset the password for. Now make up a new password, type it into both boxes. Click Save, close the window click the installer and restart
