  1. Open up System Preferences, go into Users & Groups and make sure that the account you are currently using is set to 'Allow user to administrate this computer'. You can also try changing your password there ~ maybe this helps.

    Also as previously suggested you may want to run Repair Permissions within Disk Utility (Applications/Utilities).One general step to solve troubles would be to (re)install the latest combo update however if your Mac doesn't accept your password this is out of the question.

        If that works I suggest to manually download and install the latest Combo Updater for your Mac OS X version [again, in safe mode].
