Description

The uninstall terminal routine asks for a password... I have none on the system and therefore can't complete the uninstall. What is the password that it is requesting. I used none in the original install.

Your Mac OS root password I presume.

Please forgive me but I'm not sure what you mean. I'm somewhat new to the Mac world. I have no clue what the root password is or what you are referring to. Any help would be much appreciated. I did go in under accounts and give a specific name to me as administrator and gave a password but still it does not work... See below...
