set password to none and cannot unlock anything now

Asked by Anna Couutsomitelli on 2012-11-06

I changed my password and decided I needed no password as an administrator and user so I selected the option - none- that is no password.Now I am asked for my password for every change I want to make but the system does not accept neither no password nor the old ones.What should I do?
