Please help!
I have had a former employee who set up my computer(iMac) abscond with all the disks and knowledge of my administrator and other passwords. Can anyone assist in my recovering them?

You could talk to Apple about getting replacement disks.

You can not "recover" the passwords, but there are ways to change the passwords. One issue is that this is a public forum and so we are limited in helping people to bypass the passwords since there is no way to ensure that you are the rightful owner, but more importantly that others who read this don't use the information for illegal activities.

Google is an amazing tool. Try search term "changing root password in osx".
