I have a macbook air and I am stuck in the login menu. I do not remember the main account's password. I am fine with resetting it but in order to do that, I know you have to turn it off. When I press the "shut down" icon, it says I have to enter the administrator name and password and then i can shut it down. Well yeah, I cannot remember my administrator name or password.. What the **** do I do??
