go into the Finder or just click on your desktop anywhere so you get the "Go" menu in your menu bar and select "Go to folder". Then type in

~/Library/Application Support/XBMC/userdata/

and open guisettings.xml with TextEdit.

Go up to the Edit menu and select "Find" and type in "masterlock"

It might look something like this

Code:
<masterlock>
        <lockcode>slkdflajsdflkjas</lockcode>
        <maxretries>3</maxretries>
        <startuplock>true</startuplock>
    </masterlock>

replace that text so it looks like this:

Code:
<masterlock>
        <lockcode>-</lockcode>
        <maxretries>3</maxretries>
        <startuplock>false</startuplock>
    </masterlock>

Save and close the file, then open up XBMC again.

You can make easy links to the XBMC wiki using double brackets around words: [[debug log]] = debug log, [[Add-on:YouTube]] = Add-on:YouTube, [[Adding videos to the library]] = Adding videos to the library, [[userdata]] = userdata, etc
